Validating the HPE-UD Adapter

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

To validate the adapter operation:

  1. Manually trigger the adapter executable.
    You can specify a value for the method parameter if you need to override the default settings set in the settings XML file. For example:
    'C:\Program Files\Flexera Software\HPUD\HPuCMDBStage.exe' -f 'C:\temp' -m staged
    This will write XML files under your C:\temp directory for review. It will also write data into the staging database.
  2. Inspect the saved XML files to validate the inventory gathered.
  3. Use SQL Server Management Studio to validate that the data is written to the staging database. Also review the StagingState property in the uCMDBStagingDatabaseConfiguration table in the staging database. Possible values are Running, Failed, or Success. This value must be Success before the HPE-UD data can be uploaded from the staging database to the central inventory database.
  4. Wait until the next inventory import and calculations have run. You might have to wait overnight for this.
  5. Use FlexNet Manager Suite to validate that new evidence has been recovered. Identify which evidence has been recognized by the ARL and which new rules are required. Link the applications to appropriate licenses.
