Installing the Inventory and Application Metering Plug-ins
To gather inventory data on managed computers, you must install the Inventory Plug-in on target computers. To meter applications on managed computers, you must install the Application Metering Plug-in on target computers. To install a plug-in, you configure a policy that installs the plug-in on target computers.
Application metering is a Windows-only feature and is supported on Windows XP and above client computers only. Symantec recommends that you do not install Application Metering Plug-in on Windows servers.
By default, no plug-in installation policies are enabled. You must manually enable policies.
Before performing this task, you must install the Symantec Management Agent on target computers.
This topic is a step in the process for preparing managed computers for inventory and metering.
