You could add the timestamps directly in YouTube, so the video gets easier to navigate.
Thanks for your comment, we added the chapters to the recording.
Can you please provide additional details regarding the Oracle Unspecified edition ARL improvement? When is the updated ARL planned to be released? Will that work only for Flexera One or also for FNMS on-prem? Thanks!
@nrousseau1 what is the best practice to accept the recommendations for optimizing which windows server/CIS license a host consumes. Do we just manually allocate the host or is there something we can do with the new intelligent license restriction feature in latest release to automate?
Hello @vallelyt ,
Sorry I missed you request back in Feb.
OUI evidences for Oracle are never used to recognize Oracle DB ("unspecified edition"), unless the OUI evidence is the only sign of Oracle DB of the latest version.
In other words: no other evidence (uninstall = reported by the Oracle "LMS" script by the agent) exists of a superior version. We have implemented this through precedence rules that you can find on the applications details of Oracle Unspecified edition or Oracle Standard or Enterprise.
The change was implemented back in March 2022 (from memory).
Hello @craig_moore ,
We have released with ITAM 2022R1.2 (and then with the just release on premise 2022R2 version) a "Windows Server Flat" report. The report has been recreated to allow allocations from a Business Adapter Studio (this works very well), and also for an integration that directly calls the SOAP API (GetCustomViewReult). It has attributes that makes it available for the API call. You need the SavedSearchID of your report that support can provide you. You can imagine that an integration every day (before reconciliation) reads the data in the report and allocates all servers and VMs to the right Licenses.
When it comes to Windows Server (and even more now that the "Per VM" licensing has been implemented) the recommendations (computer "by Host") is way less static and allocations will be more useful that Intelligent Restriction, for the "Standard vs. DataCenter" topic.
However, the "CIS versus Windows Server" (that is maybe your true need) is a topic that is more static. The versions of the report released in March (that is using the 90 peaks) had the "Cluster level contamination" approach. as soon as SCCM/ System Center / End Point Management Client was found in a cluster, the full cluster had to be licensed. The "Number of SCCM VMs in Cluster (and proportion of VMs with SCCM) allow to make this determination. This "cluster level" assessment allows again to use an intelligent restriction that will use a more "static" criteria.
Note that with the new "per VM" licensing managed by the latest report, the "contamination" (when using "90 peak /VM" new option) is computed at host level. For use of "intelligent restriction, I would use cluster level assessment.
Hope it helps,
