Hi Flexera,

was this fix really implemented in 2023R1?

I still have the same issue with an IBM VPC license.

That setup is like this: Host -> Physical Shared Pool -> Virtual Shared Pool -> VM

The calculated consumption is correct but the VM/Host still consumes 0 entitlements.

Best regards,

@maxhensel - the fix for this particular issue is definitely included in the 2023 R1 release. However it is possible that the behavior you are seeing has a different root cause which may need further investigation.
