Do we have any workaround to get discovery data from IBM mainframe servers. 

If yes, please provide the details. 

@Vijayflexera  - The workaround is to use another Discovery Tool that supports the mainframe, such as TAD4Z and then import the inventory from that tool into FlexNet Manager.

Thanks for your inputs! But Tivoli licenses need to be procured or any free versions available for usage. 

@Vijayflexera - I am not aware of any free products (Tivoli or otherwise) that can gather hardware and software inventory from IBM mainframe environments and make it available in a form that would be suitable for importing into FlexNet Manager Suite. I only know of commercial products that cost money.
