How to Configure Linux, Unix, and Mac OS Applications

Once Linux, Unix, and Mac OS applications are discovered, they can be configured into license units so that you can report on them.

Machines with older Mac OS systems installed on them can be discovered via the inventory process, then configured into license units and reported on.

You can configure all applications on a given platform at once, but it's recommended that you only configure the applications you want to track.

To configure applications:

  1. In the Unconfigured Applications panel, move any applications you don't want to track to the Don't configure folder.
  2. Once you are satisfied with the list of applications for each platform, right-click the Linux, Unix, or Mac OS folder, then select Automatically Configure.
To configure only certain applications, select the application(s), right-click, then select Automatically Configure.
