We're pleased to announce general availability of the Audit Collection Admin™ Beta2 for System Center Operations Manager and the Audit Collection Service (ACS). Now customers and partners can easily manage ACS via a centralized graphical interface in the Operations Manager console. The admin solution automates every manual query, task or command you've ever run or would need too for managing ACS. The solution also improves ACS health monitoring while simplifying most capacity and performance planning activities for Forwarders, Collectors and your Audit Database.
The Beta2 is currently only available for customers and partners providing read-only access. The public RC is scheduled for early October and introduces ‘set’ functionality, automated deployment, noise filtering and optimized ACS database management jobs. For existing customers this solution is covered in your 'Security Auditing' SA and available on request. If you’re not a customer and really want to leverage this solution today you can preorder your copy by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
