    collecting 20 laptops would take a long time?? Less than a week surely? 4 a day isn't that many to check over!!

    You can do it... sounds daunting at first, but at least it isn't 500 like what I have to audit!!

    Does anyone have any advice, should i be collecting in all the staff laptops, looking at all the workstations to make sure that there are no problems. or do i let it lie and hope that the ict co-ordinator has abided to the licensing before i started.

    We have around 50 workstations and about 20 staff laptops so it would take some time.

    What do you think?

    OCS-NG is great for what you need to do. I wouldnt touch spiceworks because its resource intensive/slow.
