Technet Magazine: September 2006

Are you using MOM 2005 or SMS 2003?  Do you want to learn more about how these products can be used to do more while you do less?  If so, I highly recommend that you read the free online edition of TechNet Magazine.  This month’s edition feature articles on SMS 2003 and MOM 2005.

Articles include:

  • Using WMI with MOM
  • Zero Touch Installations
  • Getting to know Windows PE
  • Using MOM for SOX compliant security auditing
  • System Center Operations Manager 2007 (aka MOM 2007)

When correctly deployed and used, MOM and SMS in conjunction with Windows 2003/2003 R2 can really make life simpler for the systems administrator.  I’m speaking from experience here.  In a past job, my team (3 of us) ran a global network of 170 servers.  Most of our time was spent on engineering for new projects/systems instead of firefighting or sneakernet deployments.  This would have been impossible without the solutions we had deployed.
