FlexNet Manager Suite Update 2018R2-06

Investigating and resolving application recognition issues is easier than ever thanks to the new Evidence tab which lists the evidence discovered for a selected inventory device. After applying this update when you see a listing for an application which you don't think is installed, or if you can't find an application which you know is installed, you can view the evidence used to recognize the applications on that device. Using this new evidence view enables you to identify and then determine the best way to resolve any discrepancies.

I cannot find the download page for FlexNet Manager 2018 R2 plug ins. Can you provide the new link?

@j_collier  - I am not sure what you mean by "plug ins" (FlexNet doesn't have "plug ins" available for download), but in general you can access what downloads are available from the Other Resources > Product and License Center menu option in Flexera Community.

@ChrisG @lyoung /anyone who can answer,

I want to know if FlexNet Manager Suite 2018 R2 is to be installed using one virtual server, where all 3 segregations of Application Server that are Web App, Batch & Inventory Servers will be created.

I want to know:

There are 2 installer folders available - 1. Normal and 2. Partitioned.

Which one should I use (between Normal & Partitioned folders) as I am not using 3 different physical/virtual servers to create all 3 Application Servers?

Thank you! 🙂

Does each Hotfix contain the code for the previous hotfixes?

In other words, I've applied Hotfix 2.

Do I need to apply both 3 and 4 or does Hotfix 4 contain what was in 3?

Looking into the hotfixes and their documentation, you should find them being independent. You should apply them all.

Level 6

After downloading and looking at the contents of each, I had assumed the same.

Thank you!

Partitioning is a SQL Server function, you can read about it here I believe, since SQL Server 2016 SP1, it is available for all editions.

Regarding FNMS I think it is used for Multi Tenant (MT) implementations.
