SCCM 2007 Registry setting for current user not all users

Posted on 2011-10-27

We are using SCCM 2007 Version 4.00.6487.2000 with R3 installed. The remote SQL server is SQL 2008.

We are using DCM Desired Configuration Management to search for a registry key in current user to validate if a key is set to number 3 (enabled) for a COM add-in in Outlook. The problem is that when looking under configuration items > objects tab > edit registry setting > general tab > Click in the Key box area you get a warning that says: Per-user setting confirmation, this setting will be evaluated for all users on target computers.

Is there a way to ask SCCM to just check the registry setting for the user(s) currently logged in?  Cleaning up the profiles on the machines is a separate issue that we are also working on, but we need to check active users only in the meantime.

    Accepted Solution

    Yes thats a silly setting. Instead of using the registry key validation you can write a little script which can also be called during DCM Check and which will query that value.
    To configure a script you must go to the "settings tab" and add s script
