Unassigned subnets - why manage them?
I was asked for Flexera's insight into why should Unassigned subnets be managed? What could happen if there are Unassigned subnets?
The environment is FNMS-Cloud
Inventory Data Sources:
- FlexNet Agent on all servers (Physical / Virtual)
- Active Directory
- 6 Beacons (around the globe)
- IBM PVU scanning enabled
- Citrix XenApp
Tier 1 publisher licenses being managed:

This view shows all of the Sites/Subnets that have been imported from Active Directory that are not assigned to a beacon.
This is only important if you have created specific Discovery Targets/Actions/Rules to be executed by a beacon (Remote Inventory, vCenter, Oracle VM, etc.) The specific devices/IP Addresses in your defined Targets must be "managed" by assigning them to a beacon.
Based on the overview of your environment, the only Sites/Subnets that need to be "managed" by assigning them to a beacon needs to be your vCenter Servers defined in your Targets.
