  • Hi,

    When you have running a ConfigMgr site you have to install the ConfigMgr client on the systems you want to manage with ConfigMgr.

    You need to enable the Software Invetory Client Agent, you can find all the required steps here:

    When it is enabled clients will notice this in the next policy interval.

  • Hi,

    Just want to add a single word to Jannes reply. To get the applications listed in Add/Remove programs you also need to enable hardware inventory. Also make sure you read about Assett Intelligence - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb632714.aspx
