For the amount saved in time discovering prerequisites or matching multiple installations, it pays for itself. The more machines, the more time saved.
Construct profiles for different purposes. Run the same profile against multiple machines for consistency. Test based on conditional values. XML format editable in any text editor or profile builder. Runs on legacy systems back to XP.
Build custom profiles to assure machines meet minimum requirements. Prepare a machine for complex software installations. Validate an existing configuration to uncover problems. Categorize tests as required, recommended, and issues.
Have new developers coming in? Need to make sure testing machines match certain settings or exemplify a certain test condition. Construct profiles to reliably configure machines to repeatable standards.
Rapidly generate snapshot profiles of a machine to validate rebuilds of installed applications after disaster strikes. Makes rebuilds repeatable and helps reduce the stress of missing configuration points.
