OK Guys. I was preparing for a Java update in our environment and made one application supersede all other Java applications. I did not have any active Java deployments but yet when I came in this morning, low and behold, Java had started updating across the organization! Turns out, the same Java application was in a Task Sequence which was deployed as available to a large number of machines so SCCM started updating Java on them. I read that this was sent in as a design change but did not make it into 2012 R2. My question is how do you deploy available task sequences and what is best practice? We are not currently utilizing unattended PC builds so I don't deploy any Required Task Sequences. I have thought about deleting all my deployments and then just deploying to specific collections and have the technician add whichever PC they wanted to image to said collection beforehand. This just seems counter intuitive. Any thoughts? Anyone been burned by this before?

yes it is by design and there are two workarounds to it, either install the applications dynamically using the variable list, and populate them using a script, that way they are not in the content list of the TS and this will not occour. Or as you wrote don't deploy the TS available to all computers, have the technicians add the computer to a collection when a computer should be reimaged.
