Congifuring SCE to manage a small business setup

1. Run the SCE configuration tools to discover the servers, PCs and network devices on your client’s network, then build them into management groups.



2. Once SCE is installed you’ll need to configure the management tools you’re using, the machines you’re managing, and the updates you want to install.



3. SCE uses SQL Server 2005’s report tools to deliver comprehensive reports about the machines you’re managing. Drill down to get the most possible information.
