I really want to test SCCM 2007 RS in our small company but we do not have a budget for a lab. I have a server ready for this but I want to control what clients it sees at the beginning to ensure I do not "screw" up our network.
I was reading In Mastering SCCM 2007 R2 by Chris Mosby and it states on page 72 that with the simple installation for SCCM 2007 R2 "It also configures the site for automatic client-push installation, which means that any system that is discovered will have the client installed. You have no control over the installation — only that once discovered, the client will be automatically installed during the next discovery cycle."
Is there a way to control what clients are discovered and "inventoried" and when the client agent is pushed out?
