So how do you count the number of instances provided for Microsoft products? Some customers use sophisticated asset management systems that allow them to scan their environment and report on deployment during operation. Others keep meticulous records of incremental provisions throughout the year. The larger the organization, the more complex the process. But ultimately, you`ll have to send a real report to Microsoft at the end of the year and pay for each incremental usage. Enterprise desktop/user products must have equal quantities on all components. If z.B was the initial command for Office, Windows and CAL and now 200 users are added via true-up, the true-up command must have the same quantities; i.e. 200 Office + 200 Windows + 200 CAL. “The Microsoft Assessment Planning (MAP) toolkit provides tracker usage computing functionality that provides usage reports for the following server products: Windows Server, Exchange Server, SQL Server, SharePoint Server, and System Center Configuration Manager.

When is the true-up due to Microsoft? The latest company registration states: (iii) online services. For online services eligible for truth under the product terms, the registered partner may reserve additional licenses prior to use, and payment may be deferred until the next true-up order.
Microsoft provides the registered partner and its software consultant with a reserved license report that goes beyond existing orders. Reserved licenses are billed retroactively to the month in which they were reserved. If you`re a Microsoft Enterprise Agreement (EA) customer, you`ll probably already appreciate the benefits it offers you in terms of licensing flexibility by providing new hardware and software. However, because this is a trust-based contract, some obligations of your end are necessary, as you may end up at the end of a Microsoft Enterprise Agreement if you don`t follow the rules.
