Enterprise Manager allows you to manage and maintain your environment by defining and enforcing a "desired state" of your computers. By using Policy Based Management within Enterprise Manager, you can control the state of computers by defining the software jobs as policies, and the time frame in which the policies will be run.
With Enterprise Manager you can:
Create and edit multiple configurations of groups and their policies which can be restricted to specific users and roles for security purposes.
Schedule configurations for policy execution on specific days and times.
Query external data sources, such as Microsoft Active Directory, to define computer groups.
Create cross-server groups of computers from the Symantec LiveState Configuration Servers in your environment, to be used as targets for policy execution.
Create policy plans for specific computer groups.
Track the status of policy deployment across your entire environment.
