What version of BFI are you on? If you are not at 18.104.22.168, then I suggest you update BFI to the latest release.
What does ‘enabled (yes/no)’ mean to you? VM Manager is a component that is installed on your BigFix server to allow communications with vCenter servers. It must always be running, so ‘enabled (yes/no)’ has no bearing on it. The status column provides information about whether the partition (virtual machine) is completely detected by BFI. Any status other than OK means there are issues to resolve.
The Software Installations report contains some columns from the Hardware Inventory report already, so you should be able to select and include them in your compliance report.
Note that the Software Installations report shows every software product that is installed on each computer that is participating in BFI. It is NOT a licensing report, so it will not have the final VPC count. For example, if you have MS SQL Server Standard Edition installed on 6 virtual machines in your environment, there will be 6 rows in the Software Installation report, one for each VM. Further, each VM will have its own Logical Processors count. Something like:
Computer | Product Name | Metric | Logical Processors
Comp 1 | MS SQL Server Std Ed | MS Virtual Core with SA | 4
Comp 2 | MS SQL Server Std Ed | MS Virtual Core with SA | 6
Comp 3 | MS SQL Server Std Ed | MS Virtual Core with SA | 6
Comp 4 | MS SQL Server Std Ed | MS Virtual Core with SA | 8
Comp 5 | MS SQL Server Std Ed | MS Virtual Core with SA | 4
Comp 6 | MS SQL Server Std Ed | MS Virtual Core with SA | 4
To understand your license position, you have to sum up all of these machines’ Logical Processors count. This is done in the All Metrics report, where there would be one row for MS SQL Server Standard Edition and a total Metric Quantity
Publisher | Product Name | Metric | Metric Quantity
Microsoft | MS SQL Server Std Ed | MS Virtual Core with SA | 32
These two reports cannot be combined in BFI.
Hopefully, this helps.
