In this presentation we will look at how SQL Server 2008 implements Policy Based Management and then by using Powershell and Central Management Servers, how we can take these policies and extend them out to SQL 2000 and 2005 instances.

This will also show where the EPMF can integrate with your repository database to ensure that you know all the instances installed and that they are all complying with your Company's SQL Server policies, making use of simple dashboards showing compliance levels and leaving you to study Books Online with your feet up!!
