managing large Windows implementations. Automated
practices help provide time-to-value by identifying
the root problems, checking for persistency, locally
correlating problems on the server, and taking corrective
action. With an automatic distribution and installation
function, administrative time and effort can be reduced.
It also includes a workbench that provides an integrated
