    Turn off "ask for permission"

    Apprentice

      I have deployed LDMS 9.0 sp3 to everyone with the ask for permission when logged on checked.

      I have been given approval to turn that off and have created a client update task.

      I have deployed that task against all machines, and see where I can repeat the push daily or weekly, but....

       

      Is it possible to make this a policy, or do it differently as a policy?

      1. Maybe through Patch, which reg keys?
      2. Or does it natively work when it calls back home to core?

          So if that is all you need to alter RC permission, in my opinion I would create a custom vulnerability to do this since this is simply changing a registry key. The good thing about custom vulnerability is you have a solution that not only supplies the change aspect but also the reporting and compliance piece. You can also simply create a batch file to change the reg key and set it as a policy.

            in winxp:

            HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Intel\LANDesk\WUSER32

            PermissionRequired = 0

             

            on Win7:

            HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Intel\LANDesk\WUSER32

            same reg value

             

             

            attached is my patch that resets remote control to turn off ViewOnly if you want to use it for reference - should just need to change the reg value in detection, patch information, & Patch install sections.
