    Software Licensing Audit - Urgent help

    Hi

    Is there a free and easy way to scan a school cc4 network and see what software is installed and how many copies are installed across the whole network. E.g. so i would know we had 450 copies of office installed across the school?

    I have tried spice works but i cannot get the software numbers to work correctly as the numbers only show about 4 licenses when i know there is a lot more.

    Also can't get the network map feature to work but thats another issue

    Thanks

    You can create a smart list in the RMMC to show all computers with software package 'X' installed. Obviosuly this won't bring up any local installs of software that you've done.

    How do you have your scan setup? DO you use ip ranges? or domain etc? Also i get a lot of machines returned saying failed to scan possibly due to ports not being open but the network all uses the same image :S

    Cheers

    it can take weeks for spiceworks to pickup all the machines. After 6 months now machines still popup.

    Use Centrix Software, gives you license usage reports as well hardware reports. or use AppSense Application Manager to block access to apps. give me a shout if you need help.
