1) How did you set up the SCCM integration (as per your intro) without logging into the beacon UI?

2) You can monitor the beacon log files and the import process from within the FNMS UI.

3) If SCCM is the only inventory data source, almost all FNMS reports will relate to SCCM inventory data somehow.

4) That will depend on whether the service account is configured to allow interactive/remote logins. You will have to work with the client's AD team configuring the most approapriate account, and allow you to login to the beacon UI.

5) The 'Named User Licenses Consumption And Optimization' report may be a good starting point.

6) That would be one way of verification.
