      The System Center Online (SCO) administrative template file provides Asset Inventory Service (AIS) with three Group Policy and Windows Registry settings that help you manage your AIS inventory.

      After downloading and saving the administrative template file (SCOnline.adm) to the %windir%\inf directory of an AIS client computer, you can use the Group Policy Management Console to view and edit the SCO administrative template. The SCO administrative template provides the following three Group Policy settings to your AIS client computers:

      • Add the client to a group -- This setting allows you to assign the computers in your inventory to a computer group.
      • Turn off fallback to Microsoft Update -- This setting allows you to prevent or allow the AIS client software from receiving updates from Microsoft Update by default. If this setting is enabled, when the AIS client software requires updates, it does not fall back to Microsoft Update.
      • Add additional proxies -- This setting allows you to specify additional or backup proxy servers that client computers can use to communicate their inventories with AIS.
