system Center 2012 Configuration Manager Documentation Library Update for Oct 2012

Microsoft also announced the October 2012 update for Configuration Manager Documentation Library, now include prerelease documentation to support System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1, and updates for the release version of System Center 2012 Configuration Manager.

"In addition, you can find a new script on the Script Center: How to Disable the Software Updates Post-Deadline Randomization Delay. This script and related information lets you disable the installation randomization delay for required software updates that we clarified in our July documentation update. This change in behavior from Configuration Manager 2007 was introduced into System Center 2012 Configuration Manager to better support VDI, and is not configurable in the console. However, in Configuration Manager SP1, you will be able to control this behavior for required software updates and required applications, by using a new client setting, Disable deadline randomization. Note that although we've updated the prerelease TechNet documentation for this new setting, it is not yet available with the beta release of Configuration Manager SP1," Microsoft stated.
