SCCM 2007: Manual Inititiate metering summarization

Software metering reports don’t show software metering data until it has been summarized. Essentially it is generally 24 hours before you can see software metering data. If you want to force it, you can use the Runmetersumm.exe tool to force the summarization. It is important to use the tool correctly.

  • Run the tool Runmetersumm.exe in “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\bin\i386”
  • Make sure that you know the correct database name of your SCCM server: Check in SQL server Management Studio
  • The command is case-sensitive; the database paramter, eg. SCCM_ ST1, must be typed in upper case
  • The tool is located in the installation folder eg. C:\ConfigMgr07SP2Eval_RTM_ENU\TOOLS


cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\bin\i386

C:\ConfigMgr07SP2Eval_RTM_ENU\TOOLS\runmetersumm.exe SCCM_ST1

You may receive the underneath error when you not run it in the “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\bin\i386” folder:

The progam can’t start because baseutil.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

    I tried running this with no luck.. my SCCM SQL DB is on a cluster on a different server than the SCCM server. What I did is :

    Logged onto the SCCM server with my account

    The DB Admin says that our instance is something like :

    I have tried running runmetersumm.exe from the SCCM server, from the ConfigMgr\bin\i386 with the 2 arguments above (not in the same command:)) and it didn’t work. I also tried just with the name of the DB just in case but everytime I get a DB does not exist or Access denied. Could that be because my account does not have access to the DB or I just don’t use the proper argument for runmetersumm.exe ???
