IBM VPC licensing in Cloud Pak products


I'm trying to get FNMS calculating IBM Cloud Pak  for Automation VPC licensing with no success. Problem is that its a collection on bundled programs and that have various entitlement consumption ratios. Some programs may 1:1 and some 1:5 (one server core consumes 5 vpc licenses). 

In FNMS you cannot set consumption ratio to a primary application, just secondary. If I set all applications as secondary products, license shows zero consumption. If I choose one primary, usage is maxed by that product usage by allocation and no ratio conversion is used.

I am considering creating licenses per each bundled program but with that I have to manually count  overall consumption. And I'd have to create more core point tables.

Hoping, this is in the works of the FNMS dev.

I would encourage you to also raise an enhancement request on this if you haven't done this already until Flexera launches a more formal ideation process through the community.


Hi John, 

There's a case opened for this. I'll try to provide all information required to get this addressed.
