I'm trying to figure out how to find all computers that have a piece of software installed on them. For example, how can find which computers have Microsoft Office?
I'm using a trial version of Patch Manager but can't figure out how to make this happen. I want to be able to find all the computers that have the software and then use Patch Manager to uninstall it.
bvista, browse your AD or WSUS computer groups in Patch Manager. Click on any of the computers. On the Actions pane on the right, click on 'Inventory'. Follow the wizard and when you arrive at 'Add computers', you can target an OU from your AD. You can use the Next buttons to finally set a recurring schedule.
Once you have the data collected, you can run reports under Reports > Configuration Management Reports
