How to check what are the client settings applied in a machine from the client end, without checking in the Console ?

Question

Hi Team,

I would like to know what are the client settings applied in a machine and which client setting is taken to apply based on the priority when we deploy 2 settings for the same machine.

Why i’m asking is that we are modifying manually a sccm remote control tool realted registry to access machine with sccm remote control client tool without waiting for the Permission of end user and it is working for few days and later when machine received any windows update the value is getting reverted back.

  1. You should use exclude collection option if you create a new custom client setting.
    Exclude the collection from the one client setting which you dont want to get applied.

  2. Hi,

    If you have SCCM Console read access then you can select the computer then right click then select client setttings –> resultant client settings.

    I don’t think same option is available on client side thru any log files or directly from client WMI side.

    I think possible to get the same information thru SQL query by passing computer name

    Thanks

  3. I don’t think that’s easily available from one single WMI class on a client machine(I have never seen it, maybe others can comment). However, you can use the WMI explorer to check out the corresponding classes to find the settings which you are looking for.

    You may follow the below blog for more understanding.

    • Thanks for the update Rajul, but i’m looking in client end in any logs.
      Because i’m facing an issue only when windows update is happening the modified values are reverting to actual ones.

      My issue is we are changing the value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftSMSClientClient ComponentsRemote Control
      Permission Required = 0 to bypass end user permissions while connect to machine with Remote control client tool, but when windows update happening in that machine from SCCM that value is reverting to 1. So need to understading in from Logs when this value is changing.

  4. The default client setting priority is 10000 or something isn’t it ?
    And you can change the priority of custom client settings as per your requirements.

    the highest priority one (the highest priority number =1) will take effect on the client … also you can right click on collection (or device) and see which is the resultant client setting policy
