License Management Reports

Applies To: System Center Configuration Manager 2007, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2

License Management Reports provide information about licensing including number of licenses in use, sales channel, and time until expiration.

Asset Intelligence license management reports provide data about licenses in use. The License Ledger report lists installed Microsoft applications in a format congruent with a Microsoft License Statement. This provides a convenient method of matching purchased licenses with used licenses. Asset Intelligence CAL reports track the number of users and devices that access servers running Microsoft Windows Server or Microsoft Exchange Server software. These reports support better evaluation of CAL usage and needs, providing a means to avoid unintentional software piracy, or over-purchasing of licenses. Other License Management reports provide information about computers acting as Key Management Servers for Windows Vista activation and other Windows Vista activation statistics.

noteNote
The accuracy of installed software title quantities and license information displayed in Asset Intelligence reports might vary from the actual number of software titles installed or licenses in use in the environment because of the complex dependencies and limitations involved in inventorying software license information for software titles installed in enterprise environments.  Asset Intelligence reports should not be used as the sole source for determining purchased software  license compliance. For more information about the dependencies and limitations involved in Asset Intelligence reporting, see About Asset Intelligence Reporting Limitations.

ImportantImportant
Several of these reports present information about the function of Key Management Service (KMS), a method of administering volume licensing. If a KMS server has not been implemented, some reports may return no data. For more information about KMS, search for KMS on Microsoft TechNet (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=3225).
