When importing inventory from IBM License Metric Tool (ILMT) or HCL BigFix Inventory, if a component has been configured to be exempted from requiring a license on any computer then the component will be exempted from requiring a license in FlexNet Manager Suite/Flexera One ITAM on all computers where it is installed instead of being exempted on only the computers where it is exempted in ILMT/BigFix Inventory.
The exemption reason shown for such an installation is “Covered by related product”.
This issue is caused by a logic error in the “reader” procedures in adapters used to import data from ILMT/BigFix Inventory.
The issue affects the adapters used to import data from either SQL Server or DB2 databases.
This issue has been fixed in the following FlexNet Manager Suite releases: 2022 R1.4 / Aug 2022 (Cloud), 2022 R2 (On Premises)
Affected components: Inventory import (read/write/export), SAM for IBM, Software license management
