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

Several hardware inventory reporting classes in the SMS_def.mof file can be enabled to support Asset Intelligence reporting requirements.

To enable data collection for client access license data, in addition to the SMS_def.mof reporting classes described in the following table, the CCM_CALTrackConfig WMI data class must be edited in the Configuration.mof file. For more information about editing the CCM_CALTrackConfig data class in the Configuration.mof file, see Prerequisites for Asset Intelligence.
