So I just about done with the grand summer reimage every system project, and have found that I didn't actually configure my Java deployment correctly. While I set JAVAUPDATE and AUTOUPDATECHECK to zero, considering myself safe from the dreaded Java Auto Update, it turns out there is a THIRD property you need to set, JU, in order to fully stop Java's updater.
Spare yourself from my fate, which looks like to be some script pushed out to all systems to somehow disable java auto update from prompting our user's to enter administrator credentials. (Which they don't have, and nobody like being reminded of that).
The Properties are set as such:
JAVAUPDATE = 0
AUTOUPDATECHECK = 0
JU = 0
Now... am I missing some FOURTH property? 0_o
