Automatic Removal of software in SCCM (Link to other Blogs)

This is more of a reminder for myself, but wanted to share with you a couple of blog posts that can help you with automatic software management using Software Metering with SCCM.  If you have Orchestrator in your environment you can take things a step further and do cool things like automatic approvals based on license count and approval cancellation after a specific time.

I have been using the SCCM/SCORCH method in my environment for a few years now and it works great until recently .. had to scramble to find these posts so that I could fix a mistake that was made.


Enjoy!!
