Consumption count for CAL licenses in FNMS 2015 R2 SP5 or earlier is incorrect.


Hi, Kindly check the attached screenshot of Microsoft CAL licenses. There is 2012 count in Consumed tab for CAL licenses. Regards,

Cal Consumption count is incorrect


The consumed count for CAL licenses is incorrect in FNMS 2015 R2 SP5 or earlier.


The automatic calculation of CAL consumption was only introduced in FNMS 2016. Earlier releases do not have inventory of or consumption calculations for CALs.

Instead, CAL licenses are manually managed therefore that count was set manually and would need to be manually changed as covered under the "CAL License Type" page of online help under "Glossary -> C" where it states "Select this license type when you want to manage the CAL consumption by manually entering a number," .

Additional Information

In FNMS 2016 the inventory of CALs for the CAL Core Suite (not Enterprise CALs) became available, please see the FNMS 2016 R1 release notes for more details.
