The Asset Intelligence synchronization point is a Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 site system role used to connect to System Center Online over TCP port 443 to manage dynamic Asset Intelligence catalog information updates.

Applies only to Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 and later.

This site role can be installed only on central sites that are running Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 or later, and all Asset Intelligence catalog customization must be configured using a Configuration Manager console connected to the central site. While all updates must be configured at the central site, Asset Intelligence catalog information is replicated to all child primary sites by using normal Configuration Manager 2007 site-to-site communication processes.

Using this site role, customers can request on-demand catalog synchronization with System Center Online or schedule automatic catalog synchronization. The Asset Intelligence synchronization point can also be used to upload uncategorized software titles to System Center Online for identification.
