Recast Permissions

ConfigMgr Client
Software Metering Usage Report Cycle

Microsoft Permissions

  • Requires that the target device has a working ConfigMgr client installed. 
  • Requires that the user running the ConfigMgr console has administrative access to the remote device.
  • Remote WMI ports must be allowed through the firewall. 
  • If the 'Ping Computer Before Running Tools' option is set, ICMP Echo must be allowed through the firewall. 
  • If using a Recast Management Server with a proxy, the service account will need administrator permissions on the remote device.

One way around some of the permissions requirements and firewall rules is installing a Recast Agent.
