                          Ivan Deloose, CERN

This talk will present the evolution of the CERN infrastructure for the 
management of Windows desktop and server computers. In the context of 
Windows for controls, an in-house framework, called Computer Management 
Framework (CMF) was developed to allow local administrators to manage 
their sets of Windows computers. This new technology, which is already 
used by the controls community, has been adapted to serve as a global 
system for the management of all Windows computers at CERN. The CMF 
architecture as well as its most principal features will be covered in 
this talk.
