Adding a New Simulation

FlexNet Manager Suite 2020 R2 (On-Premises)
You must be in the Current Simulations page (see Accessing License Simulations).
Tip: Remember that you must have run at least one license reconciliation to be able to create useful simulations.

To add a new simulation:

  1. In the tool bar above the list of any existing simulations, click Add.
    There is a brief delay while FlexNet Manager Suite assesses the most recent full license reconciliation, and collects enterprise-wide data on all installations of all applications linked to any of the license types supported by the simulation feature. Then the new simulation displays, and includes:
    • All supported licenses and related software
    • The hardware associated with each software installation
    • The virtual host and any associated resource pools (when the software is installed on a virtual machine)
    • All other virtualization host servers (that is, the ones that do not have any of the related software installed) are also included, as the VMs on these hosts are likely targets for your new deployment simulations.
  2. At the top right of the work page, in the Tasks panel, click Rename simulation.

    The Rename Simulation dialog appears.

  3. Enter a new name for your simulation.
    Tip: Consider including numbering or a date in the name to help distinguish different experiments you may try.
  4. Click Save to close the dialog.
    Tip: There is no need to save the simulation. It is automatically saved after every change.
The simulation is renamed at the top of your work page, and also in the list of Current Simulations when you next access that page.
You may now make changes to the default content of your simulation.
