It has been seen in a lot of cases that Auditors without having core knowledge of the subject come up with strange things . Once of my SCCM Fellow faced a problem wherein the auditors asked him to stop BITS and WMI on all the machines . In case you face the same kind of issue in your projects , Please make sure that you ask the auditors the questions ” What are the bad impact do you see when we keep these services running “
And By the way , We cannot live without BITS and WMI being stooped. BITS being stopped would mean our network will choke .
