A set of management technologies native to Microsoft Windows 2000 that simplifies the task of configuring and maintaining applications, settings, and data at the client and server level. IntelliMirror provides a distributed replication service that lets clients and servers “intelligently mirror” and share information stored on local and distributed file systems.
IntelliMirror mirrors the workstation environment on the network server so that the environment can be easily managed. IntelliMirror also offers full roaming support by allowing a user to log on to any client machine and access his or her software, settings, and data.
IntelliMirror is designed to simplify network administration and eliminate the need for administrators to “visit” desktop clients to upgrade operating systems and applications.
IntelliMirror uses Remote Installation Services to enable authorized clients to download fully configured operating systems, applications, and data from remote servers, thus performing unattended installations on the clients. IntelliMirror technologies will significantly reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of PC-based networks.
