All,
 
Please be aware that we have identified an issue in FlexNet ARL release #2441 impacting the linking of SQL Server Enterprise applications to licenses. Symptoms that may be observed including SQL Server Enterprise applications being unexpectedly unlinked from licenses. And consequently license consumption for SQL Server Enterprise licenses may be unexpectedly low.
 
We will be updating the ARL within the next few hours to correct this issue. SQL Server Enterprise links to licenses are expected to be restored automatically when the updated ARL is applied to FlexNet systems.
 
Thank you for co-operation,
Content team
