CIS Datacenter assignment

Re: CIS Datacenter assignment
There are multiple approaches, each of them somehow trying to force these hosts into the DC license.
Edit: has been discussed in the past.
- Group Assignment
You could assign a specific location/cost center/corporate unit to these hosts and then limit the DC license to these elements using the "Group assignment" tab. You'll also have to make sure the license consumption order is set correctly.
- Manual allocation
You could simply allocate those machines to the DC license yourself. Depending on the quantity and fluctuation in your environment, you might want to go for an automated option. In that case, please have a look at option 3.
- Automatic allocation
You can certainly define a "logic" in SQL to identify those hosts (I've done so myself in the past repeatedly). The results can be fed to a business import to automatically allocate these machines to the correct license regularly. There are a few more details to consider, but I guess you should get the general idea from this description.
