Default option for usage tracking

Hi experts,

I noticed that the Mac OSX usage options are already enabled in my installation according to the instructions (Disabled=false in the config.ini file). But for the Windows agent this has to be configured in the mgssetup.ini file first. Is this only the case in my environment or is that the default that the two OS systems have different defaults?

The default configuration is for usage metering to be turned off on all platforms, so if you are seeing it turned on then that suggests a non-default (but not necessarily uncommon!) configuration.

Take a look at the question "How can the values of configuration settings be changed?" in the following blog posting for some tips on ways that usage metering can be enabled/disabled: Application usage metering using the FlexNet inventory agent
