SCCM 2012 Deploy Cisco anyconnect with predefined Server address

Hello IT-Experts
I have a Cisco vpn anyconnect-win-3.1.05152-pre-deploy-k9.msi, and I want to deploy it with SCCM 2012R2 in a task sequence when Win 8.1 is rolled out.
However, I am new to SCCM, and I do not know how to “predefine” the Server address in the anyconnect-win-3.1.05152-pre-deploy-k9.msi when it is deployed. At least add the address with a cmd line, or something like that. It should end up with a predefined address in the field where the user at moment have to write it himself, the first time he starts the VPN client.
Can anyone help me with that?
Best regards Vincent

Strange though when I check out the MSDN page for VPN profile support by SCCM 2012R2, it stated no support for Win8.1 on Cisco AnyConnect. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn261200.aspx#BKMK_Step3
nonetheless, client profile is in xml and saw some sharing in populating the xml instead to the right client machine ProgramData folder http://www.itninja.com/question/configuring-and-using-anyconnect-client-operating-modes-and-user-profiles

Hi btan,

Actually there is Windows 8.1 support built in SCCM 2012 R2, you can see for yourself here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn261208.aspx.
For the second part you are referring to Cisco AnyConnect please check in the 3d Step the subsection "To provide connection information for the VPN profile" http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn261200.aspx

thanks but the step 3 state no support for anyconnect which is what I stated in my earlier posting. pls kindly see step 3 table

I saw the table btan, also I'm creating a profile now and and selected "Cisco Anyconnect", passing through the wizard's screens I reached the "Supported Platforms" and the choices I have are:
1) Windows 8.1 > All windows rt 8.1 or/and All Windows 8.1 (64 bit) or/and All Windows 8.1 (32-bit)
2) iPhone > iOS 5 and/or iOS 6 and/or iOS7
3) iPad > iOS 5 and/or iOS 6 and/or iOS7

thanks for clarifying, will be good MS have updated the online doc too :)
