La version 2.0 de  SMS 2003 Desired Configuration Monitoring est disponible !!!

Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 Desired Configuration Monitoring (DCM) 2.0 now supports configuration monitoring of desktops and servers. The accelerator allows the user to define desired hardware, operating system, and application configuration settings in multiple configuration data sources. Then, using the supplied auditing engine, DCM compares desired settings with actual settings and finally reports configuration compliance.

DCM 2.0 includes a redesigned user interface (UI) to reduce the time needed for defining Configuration Items. The new user interface supports complex rule definition with the Advanced View and adds a wizard-based simplified UI for defining simple rules as the Standard View. The new UI also includes common rule templates and enables users to define common rules specific to their organizations. In addition, CI rules can now be viewed and edited in a table view.

SMS 2003 Desired Configuration Monitoring 2.0 is available on the Microsoft Download Center.

The guidance also is viewable on Microsoft TechNet.
