If you can give me how it is populated I'll work through the part of being mangeable. I'm dealing with servers in several domains clients scattered accross the company. So an answer to the first question of how it is derived would much appreciated. Thanks.
It can't tell you about what it can't see. And it has to have a narrow view, thus local is relative but applicable.
Do the math - if it tried to enumerate every server and you had an internet connection (I hear these are popular), you'd end up launching SQLEM first thing in the morning, taking coffee, water, and other types of breaks, eating lunch, playing in a cricket tournament, starting a family, experiencing a mid-life crisis, then retiring and returning to discover other servers were missed because they were added while it was enumerating.
I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by. Douglas Adams
