1. "All Computers currently consuming "Deployment Solution" license node(s)" report

2. "Computers with 'Active' asset status consuming 'Deployment Solution' license but haven't sent own basic inventory to NS for last 30 days" report

  • Consider license usage for these computers because they haven't reported own basic inventory to NS for last 30 days. Probably they are lost and lead to unnecessary consumption of Deployment Solution license node.
