Many Thanks.

One more question:
I also deploy BIOS x86, but the policy covers (x86 & x64).  I will set up two 'Define Vendor Classes' for x86 and x64? But ASCII, could I set as PXEClient:Arch:00000 for both?

Thanks for your interest. At the moment the following lines are safe to change

[version]$InstallerVersion = '8.0.1210.13'
$AppName = 'Java*'

The value of $AppName variable is a wildcard string that corresponds with the DisplayName registry value, where as $InstalledVersion corresponds to DisplayVersion.

You can modify any part of the script to accommodate any type of detection method and use and/or statements to create a more restrictive set of criteria. The goal of my example is to make the SCCM client agent believe that Java is installed if its version is greater than or equal to the value of $InstallerVersion in the Variable Declaration section

Introduction

I administer SCCM in the education field for a living. Our school division contains 43 sites, spread out over a large rural area, it takes approximately 3 hours to traverse it from its furthest points. Our main site (the main office and primary site for our SCCM infrastructure) has a 100Mbps link. All of our schools connect to our 100Mbps connection via 3Mbps links.

After considering various products, such as Altiris, SCCM, Casper, etc. Our division settled on SCCM as our systems management suite of choice. This was for the most part due to a pre-existing license agreement for which we were already paying for Client ML’s.

The Problem

After consulting various sources on the internet & a certification exam…I went to work in designing the infrastructure. Infrastructure wise – the system worked flawlessly, roles deployed correctly, clients were talking to the management point…and then, we distributed our Win 7 image to our DP's (Distribution Points)…and wham, the network slowed to a grinding halt. Examination of our head-end routing appliance revealed that SCCM had consumed 90% of the bandwidth on our 100Mbps link almost instantaneously… additionally the 3Mbps connections at all sites were also pinned.

Needless to say…management was not impressed.

In consulting with Management and our Network Analyst we attempted to weigh our options… I pointed out the built in Rate Limiting features of SCCM as an option, but not understanding it …
