Reporting on Microsoft license usage

We all know how important reporting can be to keeping software asset management in check. Microsoft does provide a Terminal Server License Reporting tool that is available from the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit. Additionally, Microsoft provides a test tool that will provide the following information about a license:

  • Issuer
  • Scope
  • Issued to computer
  • Issued to user
  • License ID
  • Type and Version
  • Valid From
  • Expiration Date

  • It’s obvious how important simple tools like this can be.  Although we recommend having an automated repository for software asset management, tools provided by software providers can also be effective to supplement your other tracking tools.
