similarity policies to ensure installedsoftware the same among servers

I am trying to create a similarity policy to ensure the installed software is the same across a set of servers.


For example, let’s say I have 3 servers (to make it easy)





Each should have the same installedsoftware resides on each server and the version is the same on all servers :


Display Name                                                                        Version
Configuration Manager Client                                               4.00.6487.2000
Dell OpenManage Systems Management Software (64-Bit) 7.4.0
McAfee Agent                                                                        4.8.2003
McAfee VirusScan Enterprise                                               8.8.04001
Microsoft Exchange 2007 Enterprise Anti-spam Signatures 3.3.4604.600


I am trying to write a single similarity policy to make sure that these InstalledSoftware instances exists on each server and the version is the same.

We will try to create a view . This view with the relationship between Cis to InstalledSoftware with the rule (name of the software ) .
