FlexNet Manager Suite

FlexNet Manager for IBM

New Adapter for IBM Passport Advantage: FlexNet Manager for IBM now provides an adapter to IBM Passport Advantage that, for the first time, allows us to import license entitlement data directly from the software publisher. This can ease the process of obtaining license entitlements and allow organizations to more quickly achieve an effective license position. Getting entitlement data directly from the vendor gives customers a level of confidence that they are 100% aligned on entitlements in case of an audit.

New Adapter for IBM License Metric Tool (ILMT) and Software Usage Analysis (SUA): This new adapter adds support for IBM’s latest releases of ILMT and SUA tools, delivering support for IBM Processor Value Unit (PVU) licenses, and sub-capacity licensing.


FlexNet Manager for Microsoft

Windows Server 2012 and System Center License Support: The 2014 R2 release of FlexNet Manager for Microsoft provides support for the Windows Server 2012 processor based license. This includes built-in knowledge of the licensing rules:

  • A minimum of two processor licenses must be purchased for each physical server.
  • The Standard edition license only permits two Operating System Environments (OSEs) while the Datacenter edition allows unlimited OSEs.

FlexNet Manager for Microsoft 2014 R2 also supports Microsoft System Center license models, which are different between desktop and server operating systems. On the server side, the Standard edition supports two OSEs per license, the Datacenter edition an unlimited number of OSEs. For desktops, two new System Center licenses have been added to FlexNet Manager for Microsoft: The Microsoft System Center Client User license and the Microsoft System Center Device License.

FlexNet Manager Platform

License Management for App-V Virtual Apps Running in Citrix XenDesktop Environment Many customers using desktop virtualization, such as Citrix XenDesktop, use application virtualization as well (application virtualization within desktop virtualization). Reporting on the license position in these types of virtual environments is challenging. With the 2014 R2 release, FlexNet Manager Platform provides license management for Microsoft App-V (v4.6) virtual applications running in Citrix XenDesktop (v6.5) environments.
