Microsoft Forefront Protection Server Script Kit

Just installed Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server in one of my production servers yesterday (more on this in a couple of days) and I am waiting to install the Forefront Protection Server Management Console.
However, today I just found out about the Microsoft Forefront Protection Server Script Kit!
This kit provides multi-server management capabilities for Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server and Forefront Protection 2010 for SharePoint.

"In addition to the ability to manage multiple Forefront Protection Servers from a single location, this Solution Accelerator provides easily extensible command-line scripts that help enable server discovery, configuration deployment, and integration with existing management technologies. It also offers basic reporting capabilities to detect configuration drift and monitor server statistics.

Configuration Management and Reporting
- Capture server configuration snapshots and push snapshots to any number of servers
- Compare configuration of any number of servers or baselines
- Obtain statistics from one or many servers, including information about infected files, detected malware, server health, and more
- See summary and/or server detail views"

Going to try it straight away! :-D
