KACE SMA - Windows 7 Extended Security Updates (ESU) MAK Deployment
We are tasked with deploying over 1,000 Win 7 ESU MAK Licenses within our organization. So far the deployment has been smooth but we are finding the occasional client PC that does not have the new MAK Lic installed.
At this point, we are looking for a way to determine exactly how many Win Devices have the new MAK applied. Does anyone know how to search or report using the KACE SMA against the MAK Lic File that the Windows command slmgr /dlv provides? THE Windows Script Host provides Information such as Name: Windows(R) 7, Client-ESU-Year1 add-on-for, Description, Activation ID, Extended PID, partial product Key, etc.

use a Custom Inventory Rule (or many in that case) which runs slmgr and greps the output for the nessesary info.
As an example I check if the system is licensed or not.
ShellCommandTextReturn(cmd /c c:\windows\system32\cscript.exe c:\windows\system32\slmgr.vbs -dlv|findstr status)You can modify it for the output you want and then you can report against your CIRs
