Remote connection profiles in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager must be deployed to one or more device collections before they can be used.
Use the Deploy Remote Connection Profile dialog box to configure the deployment of remote connection profiles. As part of the configuration, you define the collection to which the remote connection profile is to be deployed and specify how often the remote connection profile is evaluated for compliance.
If a device leaves a collection to which a remote connection profile has been deployed, the remote connection profile settings are disabled on the device. However, for this process to occur correctly, you must have already deployed at least one configuration item or configuration baseline that contains a configuration item from your site.
To deploy a remote connection profile
In the Configuration Manager console, click Assets and Compliance.
In the Assets and Compliance workspace, expand Compliance Settings, and then click Remote Connection Profiles.
In the Remote Connection Profiles list, select the remote connection profile that you want to deploy, and then, in the Home tab, in the Deployment group, click Deploy.
In the Deploy Remote Connection Profile dialog box, specify the following information:
- **Collection** - Click **Browse** to select the device collection where you want to deploy the remote connection profile. - **Remediate noncompliant rules when supported** - Enable this option to automatically remediate the remote connection profile when it is found to be noncompliant on a client computer, for example, when it is not present. - **Allow remediation outside the maintenance window** - If a maintenance window has been configured for the collection to which you deploy the remote connection profile, enable this option to let Configuration Manager remediate the remote connection profile outside the maintenance window. For more information about maintenance windows, see [How to Use Maintenance Windows in Configuration Manager](hh508762\(v=technet.10\).md). - **Generate an alert** - Enable this option to configure an alert that is generated if the remote connection profile compliance is less than a specified percentage by a specified date and time. You can also specify whether you want an alert to be sent to System Center Operations Manager. - **Specify the compliance evaluation schedule for this configuration baseline** - Specify the schedule by which the deployed remote connection profile is evaluated on client computers. You can specify either a simple or a custom schedule. <div class="alert"> > [!NOTE] > <P>The profile is evaluated by client computers when the user logs on.</P> > <P>If two remote connection profiles are deployed to the same device collection, where in one profile <STRONG>Remediate noncompliant rules when supported</STRONG> is checked and in the other profile <STRONG>Remediate noncompliant rules when supported</STRONG> is not checked, and the two remote connection profiles contain different connection settings, then the profile in which <STRONG>Remediate noncompliant rules when supported</STRONG> is not checked might override the settings in the other profile. This type of remote connection profile deployment is not supported by Configuration Manager.</P> </div>
Click OK to close the Deploy Remote Connection Profile dialog box and to create the deployment. For more information about how to monitor the deployment, see How to Monitor Remote Connection Profiles in Configuration Manager.
