Last week we posted a series of blog posts to answer the question, “How can I ensure that the No_SMS_On_Drive.SMS file is on all site servers?” In case you missed it, the answer was that you needed to use DCM. We showed you step-by-step instructions on how to create a DCM rule to detect which SCCM 2007 Site Servers don’t have the No_SMS_On_Drive.SMS file installed on C:\.

What about creating a DCM rule in SCCM 2012? Fortunately, there are no differences between SCCM 2007 or SCCM 2012 in creating a DCM rule, so you can follow the same steps.
