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

To disable the Asset Intelligence feature, all hardware inventory reporting classes that Asset Intelligence reports rely on must be disabled.

When a Systems Management Server 2003 SP3 site with the Asset Intelligence feature already installed and enabled is upgraded to Configuration Manager 2007, Asset Intelligence data collection will remain enabled. The procedures in this topic can be used to disable all enabled hardware inventory reporting classes in Configuration Manager 2007 or Configuration Manager 2007 SP1.

To disable Asset Intelligence in Configuration Manager 2007 sites, the SMS_def.mof hardware inventory reporting file must be manually edited to disable all required hardware inventory reporting classes that Asset Intelligence reports rely on. For more information about modifying the SMS_def.mof file, see How to Extend Hardware Inventory Using the SMS_def.mof File.

To disable Asset Intelligence in Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 sites, the Asset Intelligence Reporting Class Settings dialog box can be used to disable all required hardware inventory reporting classes that Asset Intelligence reports rely on.

To disable the Asset Intelligence feature in Configuration Manager 2007 Sites

  1. On the Configuration Manager 2007 primary site server computer, navigate to the <ConfigMgr installation directory> \ Inboxes \ clifiles.src \ hinv directory.

  2. Using Notepad.exe, open the SMS_def.mof file and make any necessary changes. To disable a hardware inventory reporting class, change the class reporting qualifier from True to False.

    For a list of hardware inventory classes that Asset Intelligence reports depend on, see Hardware Inventory Reporting Classes Required for Asset Intelligence Reports.

  3. Close the SMS_def.mof file, and save changes.

    noteNote
    Clients will continue to report hardware inventory information that Asset Intelligence reports depend on until they have performed hardware inventory using the new hardware inventory reporting policy based on the contents of the updated SMS_def.mof hardware inventory file.

To disable the Asset Intelligence feature in Configuration Manager2007 SP1 Sites

  1. In the Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 console, navigate to System CenterConfiguration Manager / Site Database (<site code> - <site name>) / Computer Management / Asset Intelligence.

  2. Right-click Asset Intelligence, and click Edit Asset Intelligence Reporting Class Settings.

    noteNote
    If the Configuration Manager console action pane is displayed while Asset Intelligence is selected in the console, the Asset Intelligence Reporting Class Settings dialog box can also be started by clicking Edit Asset Intelligence Reporting Class Settings in the action pane.

  3. To disable Asset Intelligence reporting, clear the check box for all the available Asset Intelligence reporting classes displayed, and click OK. After clicking OK, the selected hardware inventory reporting classes will be automatically disabled in the SMS_def.mof hardware inventory reporting file stored in the <ConfigMgr installation directory> \ Inboxes \ clifiles.src \ hinv directory on the primary site server computer.

    noteNote
    Clients will continue to report hardware inventory information that Asset Intelligence reports depend on until they have performed hardware inventory using the new hardware inventory reporting policy based on the contents of the updated SMS_def.mof hardware inventory file.
