Hi,

Where is a resolution to this bug currently at? I see this relates to release 2016 on-prem. I have noted this is still an issue in 2019R1 on -prem.

Any feedback would be great.

This problem is showing up as already being fixed in FlexNet Manager Suite Cloud, and the fix is expected to be included in the upcoming FlexNet Manager Suite On-premises 2019 R2 release.
