DC as

Just in case you didn’t ask
AKA FAQ
 Can you run the reports using SSRS?
 Why doesn’t this work with SQL Server 2005?
 How do I uninstall the Data Collector?
 How many servers can a single MDW handle?
 How come I can’t start the Utility Information collection
set?
 How come you didn’t talk about the Utility Control Point?
