Way to prevent agent from breaking a Inventory Beacon

I've seen a few times where when a customer is rolling out the FlexNet Agent to Windows machines, the target list of machines includes servers which have the FlexNet Inventory Beacon. When this occurs we've seen several times the agent install will actually break the installation of the Inventory Beacon, in some cases, removing the Inventory Beacon entirely. 

Has anyone else seen this or any other way to prevent this? My only other suggestion to scan the machine where an Inventory Beacon is installed would be to run a standalone NDTrack / scheduled task?
