Adobe audit (W. Creasey/R. Drake)

Adobe auditing universities in higher education

Adobe is asking for:

  • The number of machines on campus
  • An active directory list
  • Scripts run on all computers — software inventory since 1989
  • All re-seller info
  • Reconcile records in aggregate

Per the CLP, Adobe has the right to come on campus, pick a computer and ask for records.

  • R. Drake said they will use KBox client for PCs and Macs, although some macs may not work and will have to run script manually
  • The script will run at login to get Adobe information and will then send it back to a database
  • Script will run for 30-45 days to capture server information and check numbers to see where we are
  • W. Creasey showed valid proof of purchase vs. invalid according to Adobe. From Adobe’s standpoint they are going to help us via the audit
