Quelques détails sur Microsoft Systems Management Server 2003 Desired Configuration Monitoring

Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 Desired Configuration Monitoring (DCM) is a powerful solution to maintain a consistent configuration across all server roles and hardware types and ensure that all servers have required software updates, service packs and drivers installed. This solution requires Windows Server 2003 or Windows XP for component installation and will monitor most Microsoft Windows Server System applications and hardware configurations. The solution runs on any server application where configurations can be accessed through Microsoft Active Directory, Window Management Instrumentation, metabase, file system, and registries.

Many unplanned outages are avoidable, and they are often related to configuration errors with both software and hardware. You can use DCM with SMS 2003 to check for undesired configuration changes across multiple configuration sources.
