SMS Companion Software Enables Microsoft Best Practice for Systems Management Server 2003 (SMS 2003)










Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 16, 2006

Recently, thousands of computers have been affected by high CPU utilization when running the Inventory Tool for Microsoft Updates (ITMU) that has caused end user disruption and increased call volume to help desks.

Microsoft has acknowledged the problem and recommends this scan be performed off hours to minimize end user disruption, however this method increases the time necessary to patch your environment because all computers must be powered on, which cannot be easily guaranteed.

Companies who are not willing to compromise patch success for reduced end user interruption choose SMS Companion software View product data.

Only SMS Companion can enforce schedules and wake computers after hours to perform updates.

One customer quotes:

“I have been watching the flurry of activity with the ITMU and the interruption of end users during work hours. We have been able to implement a policy using SMS Companion so that ITMU scans only occur during non-productive hours. We just tell the ITMU scanning advertisement not to run between 7:00 am and 6:00 pm local time. SMS Companion wakes, scans, and patches my clients without ever affecting my users.”

SMS Companion is directly available from SMS Expert, Inc. and is priced per SMS Advanced Client.
