CIS Datacenter, apps installed but zero consumption?

I have a CIS Datacenter license which has mostly been configured through SKU automation. All of the permitted applications have been associated to the license.

A number of the applications are showing lots of installs. Despite this, the actual license isn't computing any consumption against the related installs. Any ideas where I can start?

Re: CIS Datacenter, apps installed but zero consumption?

In the 'Microsoft Practice Guide' PDF document available for download for registered users, there is a chapter 'Core Infrastructure Server Suite (CISS)' (page #45). In this chapter, you find the following recommendations for recognizing CISS:

CISS is by default recognized as an Application Suite in FlexNet Manager where Windows Server and System Center component applications are found on the same device – this is discouraged in most cases and can be overridden by changing the number of applications necessary for recognition in the Application Suite evidence page of the Evidence Tab of the Application.

By adjusting the suite recognition criteria to requiring 10 installations to trigger recognition you can ensure that only the components of CISS are recognised (Done in the Application Suite tab seen on the Evidence tab of the Application).

Instead the CISS license should have the component products of CISS assigned (Windows Server, System Center SCCM (Recognized separately in the ARL).

The 'Microsoft Practice Guide' v5.0 can be found in the 'Practice Guide' section in the 'Learning Center' here in the community.

According to the 'Microsoft Practice Guide', yes.

However, there are some other recommendations for configuring a CISS license in this document that you may want to look at.

So after a weekend of inventory and reconcile jobs, this has not resolved.

CIS is configured the way the practice guide recommends. Applications tied to the licenses show installations. But consumption on the license itself still reflects a total zero.

Very stumped.
