Consumption with no install

Has anyone ever seen in a license consumption view where consumption is being calculated but the Installed column shows No?  Some are allocated and some are unallocated.  And use rights & rules does NOT have "Allocations consume license entitlements" checked.  I'm stumped why the users or devices would even show up if FNMS doesn't see it installed??

Re: Consumption with no install

What you are describing would be a common scenario for Oracle Processor in an ESX environment, because Oracle requires all hosts in an ESX cluster to be licensed.

For example, you have a cluster1 with two hosts, and HostA has a single guest with a product licensed under oracle processor. In the license consumption tab, it will list HostA and HostB as Installed No, but then have consumption, and GuestA would have Installed Yes, but no consumption because the consumption is calculated at the host level.

Cluster1             Cores        Installed      Consumed

     HostA               16                 No                    16

           GuestA        4                  Yes                    0

     HostB              16                 No                     16

So it may depend on a few factors, such as license type, it is physical vs virtual environment, etc.

Re: Consumption with no install

The example I'm seeing is for Think-Cell, a simple user license type.  There is no relation to clusters and hosts.  ??

Hi Kathy,

Do you run 2019 R2? Because then you should have a look at the assessment details for this license.

Re: Consumption with no install

no we have v2018 R1.  Is there a fix for this version to add that feature?
