Detailed Description

The Enable-CMSoftwareMeteringRule cmdlet enables one or more software metering rules in Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager. You can enable a rule that you previously disabled by using the Disable-CMSoftwareMeteringRule cmdlet. When System Center 2012 Configuration Manager automatically creates software metering rules, it creates them as disabled.

Software metering monitors and collects software usage data from System Center 2012 Configuration Manager clients, such as when clients began using a particular software program and how long users have worked with that software. You can create software metering rules that specify which software to monitor.

You can specify rules that enable software metering rules by ID or by product name, or use the Get-CMSoftwareMeteringRule cmdlet.

For more information about software metering in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, see Introduction to Software Metering in Configuration Manager (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=268432) on TechNet.
