Hi shitanshu ! Thanks a lot for these posts. I have just one question : can I use Sharepoint Foundation 2010 instead of WSS 3.0 SP2 ? I didn't find anything relative to this !
Thanks in advance for your answer.
Thank you so much for these queries, it been very useful for me. Is it possible to get a query similar to Windows updates compliance for third party patches liek Adobe, Firefox
Is it possible to have the color as we "want" not per default? I have critical issues or not responding in blue!!! I have responding or healthy as red, etc.... this does not match well the purpose... :)
Do we have something similar for configmgr2012? How MSIT is doing for Configgr 2012.

Hello Shitanshu, first of all congrats on just a fine article, I have used several times for SCCM 2007 and works fine !
The IT managers love these dashboards to "control" things.
Because I now have clients with SCCM 2012, and the dashboards aren´t available for SCCM2012, I would like to know if anybody try to use it with SCCM2012 ? and the results/expectactions about this ?
Thanks in advance.
