The Calculated consumption column shown on the Consumed tab when viewing a license record should be 0 when a device has been exempted with the reason "Device role meets exemption rule".
However in a situation where a device has been exempted from consuming a license of type IBM PVU for this reason, and where the device is not a virtual machine with a host, the Calculated consumption may be reported as non-0.
This behavior is caused by a defect in the logic that sets the Calculated consumption field in the scenario described above.
This issue does not affect:
The total consumption calculated for licenses (which is calculated correctly).
The Calculated consumption value shown for virtual machines that have a known host.
Licenses that do not have a type of IBM PVU.
This issue is still open but not currently scheduled to be addressed.
Affected components: SAM for IBM, Software license management
Master issue ID: IOJ-2254376
