Status information for managed and audited computers

If you have authentication and privilege elevation features or audit and monitoring service features deployed, the counted/uncounted information in report Section 2 indicates the status of the computer as Active or Inactive:

  • Active if the computer has been used for authentication and privilege elevation, or for audit and monitoring service, within 45 days prior to the date that the report was run.

    Computers with an active status are included in the license count.

    For authentication and privilege elevation licenses, the time stamp of the managed computer logon to the domain controller is monitored if the functional level of the domain controller is Windows Server 2003 or later. The licensing report uses the time stamp of the LastLogonTimestamp attribute to determine whether there has been logon activity within 45 days prior to the date that the report was run.

    For audit and monitoring service licenses, the licensing report uses the most recent time that the managed computer has communicated with a collector to determine whether there has been auditing activity within 45 days prior to the date that the report was run.

  • Inactive if the computer has not been used for authentication and privilege elevation, or for audit and monitoring service, within 45 days prior to the date that the report was run.

    Inactive computers are not included in the license count.

See Example 6: Counted identity and privilege elevation computers for an example of computer status information.
