If you are still running SQL Server 2008 the installer first installs SQL Server Native Client 11 and requests a reboot. Only when the installer resumes it checks the SQL version and tells you it can't continue. No real harm done but, well, not really adjuvant.
Funny, just wrote a post today that mentions hide/unhide. Off the top of my head - I'm curious how hide behaves compared with delete, other than that you can view hidden computers but not deleted.
And: "Unlike the delete option, once hidden, if the computer subsequently sends a status message to Enterprise Console it will automatically be unhidden" - if this is really true then 'delete' is the new feature and 'hide' does what delete did. A message from an endpoint caused it to get undeleted.
Guess I'll have some fun tomorrow ;)
