Put Your Feet Up : Simplified Management using the Enterprise Policy Management Framework (Martin Cairney)
Author: Darren Gosbell Date Posted: 10/10/2011 6:35:28 AM
Wouldn't you rather spend your day learning all the funky new features in SQL Server ‘Denali’ than running all your daily checks over your instances? SQL Server 2008 introduced Policy Based Management which allows a fine-grained level of configuration and control of the instance's properties. The Enterprise Policy Management Framework takes this and extends it out to allow you to manage SQL 2000 and 2005 instances through policies as well.

In this presentation I'll take you through the basics of Policy Based Management and look at the way the EPMF allows you to check on all your instances from 2000 to 2008 in one convenient location.
