The challenging constraints on the design of the Electromagnetic Calorimeter (ECAL) of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment, such as rigorous temperature and voltage stability, imposed the development of a complex Detector Control System (DCS). In this paper the final layout and functionality of the CMS ECAL DCS are presented and the operational experience during the detector's commissioning and cosmic runs is discussed.
