Query for user affinity

I had a customer ask for a query that would show which users were primary on clients based on user device affinity data.  There are a few views that are related to UDA data (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn581963.aspx) and you can join these on a few different columns, depending on the view. The v_UserMachineRelationship view shows users and…

what do i install on my CM2012 R2 site?

Seems to be some confusion among folks on which SP2/R2SP1 download you should run on your CM2012 R2 site.  Here is the important part from the notes:  If you have a System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager installation, you can use the System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP2 media to install the latest patches and automatically…
