Description

The Enable-CMSoftwareMeteringRule cmdlet enables one or more software metering rules in Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager. You can enable a rule that you previously disabled by using the Disable-CMSoftwareMeteringRule cmdlet. When System Center Configuration Manager automatically creates software metering rules, it creates them as disabled.

Software metering monitors and collects software usage data from System Center Configuration Manager clients, such as when clients began using a particular software program and how long users have worked with that software. You can create software metering rules that specify which software to monitor.

You can specify rules that enable software metering rules by ID or by product name, or by using the Get-CMSoftwareMeteringRule cmdlet.

For more information about software metering in System Center Configuration Manager, see Introduction to Software Metering in Configuration Manager on TechNet.

Examples

Example 1: Enable rules for a specific product

PS C:\>Enable-CMSoftwareMeteringRule -ProductName "Accounting Package"

This command enables software metering rules for a product named Accounting Package. There may be more than one rule. If you previously disabled some rules for this product, but not all, the cmdlet does not inform you that some rules were already enabled.

Example 2: Enable a specific rule

PS C:\>Enable-CMSoftwareMeteringRule -Id "16777229"

This command enables a software metering rule that has the specified ID.
