DPM 2010 exclusion while hardenning the Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have installed DPM 2010 on windows 2008 R2. Now due to customer policy they want to hardened the Server. The hardened parameters on Operating System at Service level, registry level, local group policy level.

    Kindly request you to provide any checklist which mentions what needs to be excluded when hardening while configuring the above mentioned System Center DPM 2010 application so that it functions.

    Thanks,

  • Hi Manzoor

    MS didnt release any security template to hardened the OS for DPM installad machine. You have to perform a test lab and come to know the issue and solve it.

    Revview the basic, network and software requirements for DPM installation and perform your OS hardening.

  • Hi,

     

    Thanks for your reply, MS is providing .mxl file with documents, Which we can run through SCW wizard  to hardened the SCOM Server.

    Is there any .xml file available for DPM which i can run through SCW to hardened the DPM Server, or is there any other solution.

    Thank You,

    Hi,
    I have seen some template which can be load to harden windows OS for
    differnt purpose. Can ony of you provide a link that include the template to
    harden the windows 2008 server standard OS to run a DPM2010 server? I believe
    there should be some best practise to secure the DPM server. Please
    advise,
    Thanks.
