Re: Asset Status change from active to Dummy

@KMaria - You would need to investigate why the details of that inventory device were deleted out of the inventory source (SCCM?)

If the reason is because the inventory device no longer exists in your environment, you would then update the status of the Hardware Asset in FlexNet Manager to a status of "Retired" or "Disposed".

Re: Asset Status change from active to Dummy

This seems to make a previously linked Inventory disappear.  Is it still in my SQL database just with a status of Dummy?   Is there a way to force FNMS to remember the last inventory without changing the status to 'Dummy'?   We intentionally have our SCCM only remember about 14 days but depended on FNMS to retain the inventory link.   If not, what is the difference between an asset that is set to Dummy and one that is "Out-of-Date" Inventory?

Re: Asset Status change from active to Dummy

HI @pchristian 

Again it is the inventory device linked to the asset that has changed from being active but "Out-of-Date"to dummy as it is gone.  The difference is that "Out-of-Date" inventory will still consume your licenses.
