It runs in the following modes:

ModeDescription
Configuration Manager
This mode provides information for AppClarity on software installations and software usage for any servers and workstations with the Configuration Manger client installed it also retrieves information on SQL Server and AppV applications managed through Configuration Manager.

This mode also provides machine and user details for Shopping.

Server
This mode provides information on software installations for Windows and LINUX/UNIX servers to enable AppClarity to manage servers and server software.
SQL Server
This mode provides information on SQL Server for Windows and LINUX/UNIX servers that do not have the ConfigMgr agent installed to enable AppClarity to manage SQL Server software. It also retrieves all the information that would be gathered in the basic Server mode.

The SQL Server feature requires additional configuration which can be arranged with 1E Professional Services. If you would like to implement this feature please contact 1E for more details.
