9- Client Settings

There are two different type of client settings, Client Device Settings and User Client Settings. These settings are like a group policy that we can assign to collections. Client settings are located under Administration Panel. If a client computer is not assigned with any client settings, that client computer uses the default client setting. Therefore, it is good practice not to modify the default client settings. We can create custom client settings as follows:

Right click Client Settings and select Create Custom Client Settings.

Name your device setting and check the settings that you want to configure

I want my client to get the policy every 60 minutes. If your SCCM will serve on the internet, you can let clients to get client settings over the internet.

Set Compliance settings as Yes.

Enable User Data & Profiles: This setting can be used for Windows 8 clients and later. This settings can manage folder redirection, offline files and roaming profiles on computers that run Windows 8 for users in your hierarchy.

For example, you can:

Redirect a user’s Documents folder to a network share.

Ensure that specified files stored on the network are available on a user’s computer when the network connection is unavailable.

Configure which files in a user’s roaming profile are synchronized with a network share when the user logs on and off. Click For More Info

The following settings are self-explanatory. We should point our Application Catalog Website Point by clicking Set Website button.

You can let computers to show notification messages when deployments require a restart.

Remote Tools should be Enabled if you are going to give support for user computers remotely.

Use Set Viewers button to specify which domain users or groups can use Remote Tools.

Software Update Scan Schedule: Schedule clients, so they scan the Software Update from Software Update Point.

Schedule Deployment Re-Evaluation: When software updates that have been previously installed are no longer found on client computers, and still required, they are reinstalled.

Click OK and save the settings.

Now lets create also a Custom Client User Settings

User and Device Affinity should be enabled to match users and the computers. That will let us know who uses which computer.

That is all I wanna mention about the client settings. Most of them self explanatory anyway.
