Katmai - Group Policy for SQL Server

If you've worked in a large AD shop you will have come across Group Policy. A means by which you can make sure each component in a domain has the same settings, behaves the same way, has the same security. This is essential when managing a large server estate.

Unfortunately Group Policy doesn't extend to SQL Server. So you can't say I want all servers backed up,don't use auto shrink, you must rename the sa account etc. (unless you use a third party system)

Katmai brings us Policy Based Management, if you manage multiple servers you'll love it.
