Recently a client asked, “How can I ensure that the No_SMS_On_Drive.SMS file is on all site servers?” You need to use DCM, and over a series of blog posts, I will show you how to create a DCM rule to detect which SCCM 2007 Site Servers don’t have the No_SMS_On_Drive.SMS file installed on C:\. In today’s post I will cover how to create a Configuration Baseline.

Part 4 – How to Create a Collection with Non-Compliant Servers
Browse to the Configuration Baselines node, right-click on it and select New Configuration Baseline. This will open the Create Configuration Baseline Wizard.
Enter No_SMS_On_Drive.SMS within the Name field, and then click Next.
Under Rules select applications and general, and then check No_SMS_On_Drive.sms. Next, click OK, and then click on Finish.
At this point, you can close the Create Configuration Baseline Wizard.
