Customer thinks only CIs with a value in the attribute DiscoveredOSName should generate a license count.
He is now using HP uCMDB v10.10 with HP Universal Discovery which gives him the possibility to see how much licenses he is using (Help - About HP Universal CMDB - License status).
The License summary now shows: “Universal Discovery – Full: 211/2.100 – Usage: 10%”
He is not able to figure out how the number 211 is calculated. The number of CIs with a value in the attribute DiscoveredOSName is only 76.
Could you please help us figure out how licenses are counted in Universal Discovery? A technical explanation would be helpful because the licensing guide is not so detailed here.
