Yes, many people have experienced this issue. A good resource for me has been http://www.labareweb.com/java-1-7-auto-update-deployment-with-sccmmdt/. Unfortunately, despite the 127 comments on this article from a lot of IT staff like ourselves, nobody has been able to find a good solution. By Oracle's on admissions they've broken JRE including the tools needed to manage Java from an enterprise level (https://blogs.oracle.com/security/entry/maintaining_the_security_worthiness_of). They claim the next update for v7 will fix a lot of the enterprise problems (such as it not honoring the d.p (deployment.properties) file. But we seem to be at their mercy for the most part. Some of the work-arounds (from that first link) include running an AutoIt script that watching for and suppresses any security boxes that pop up. Sorry I don't have a better answer.
P.S., Keep a close eye on this thread. There's been lots for reports in the community that any threads that talk about this issue end up getting deleted for no reason. I've had this happen to me six times already. It's like they think it's easier to pretend a problem doesn't exist then it is to just fix it!
Guys; since you are working on deploying Java for your company probably you have seen this issue so i am posting it here.
when you deploy java 7.21 on win7 users, after deployment when users try to Open their IE they get a login screen and apparently it is related to Java ssv helper plugin. it is trying to enable it and needs admin account/password.
my question is how can I enable this Java plugin silently so it doesnt pop up for users any more.
your help is appreciated.
