   Hi All :

   Compliance settings in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager provides a unified interface and user experience that lets you manage the configuration and compliance of servers, laptops, desktop computers, and mobile devices in your organization. Compliance settings contains tools to help you to assess the compliance of users and client devices with regard to a number of configurations, such as whether the correct Windows operating system versions are installed and configured appropriately, whether all required applications are installed and configured correctly, whether optional applications are configured appropriately, and whether prohibited applications are installed. Additionally, you can check for compliance with software updates, security settings, and mobile devices. Configuration item settings of the type WMI, registry, script, and all mobile device settings in Configuration Manager let you automatically remediate noncompliant settings when they are found.

   In this document , I will to show you how to implement a secure and standardization desktop configuration .

    Hi Tim :
    I have not find any official document regarding to compliance settings performance impact. In my experience, the compliance management need less performance on the agent side and server side, and it is a very fast phase. According to the actual needs of customers, we usually set 40-50 configuration items. So don’t worry.

    I was trying to follow the steps listed in Compliance Settings doc in a lab setup. I cannot find the Baseline Configuration Packs those are mentioned imported in the lab.

    I am new to SCCM compliance management and settings. I lead compliance activities around our end user systems, but more from a management perspective and not the technical capabilities.

    I think a Standard Desktop Baseline would be a good way to evaluate our currently deployed systems compared to the standard image. Where can I go to find information on the performance impact of these configuration items and baseline as the number of applications and settings increases?

    What are the limitations of the automated remediation?
