One thing I really don’t like about SCUP 2011 is, the settings are user specific, which means different users will have to manually configure SCUP settings on the same computer. By default, even the SCUP database is stored within the user’s profile. There are already many articles out there on how to change the SCUP database location. (i.e. http://myitforum.com/cs2/blogs/rzander/archive/2011/05/30/scup-2011-with-shared-database.aspx) Other than the database locations, all other settings such as WSUS connection, SCCM connection, Certificate, source location, etc. are all user based when configured within SCUP Options window: I figured out an very easy way to make these settings machine-based settings.
