KBHere’s a heads up on new Knowledge Base article/Hotfix Rollup Package we published. This hotfix rollup package resolves compatibility issues of Asset Intelligence in Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Service Pack 2 (SP2) with other Microsoft volume license products. This hotfix rollup resolves the following issues and is dated March 2012:

  • The query for the Asset Intelligence "License 01A" report does not detect Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 licenses.
  • The query for the Asset Intelligence "License 01A" report does not detect Microsoft Visio 2010 edition changes after an upgrade operation.
  • The query for the Asset Intelligence "License 01A" report incorrectly reports some editions of Windows Server 2008 as Windows XP.
  • The query for the Asset Intelligence "License 06A" report does not detect Microsoft SQL Server 2005 licenses.
  • The query for the Asset Intelligence "License 06A" report detects Microsoft SQL Server 2005 licenses incorrectly on computers that have Microsoft SQL Server 2005 administration tools installed.

  • Some Asset Intelligence data is not synchronized correctly in System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 because of key constraint violations.
