Disconnected Mode

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

Whenever there is a network discontinuity between the source and target databases, your inventory adapter must function in disconnected mode.

When an inventory adapter runs on your central application server in your FlexNet Manager Suite implementation, it can have free and simultaneous access both to the downstream source database (from which to collect inventory) and to the upstream target database (to which to upload the gathered inventory). If the source database can be directly contacted from the application server, there is no need for a disconnected mode. However, there are times when this free access is not available: for example, whenever the source inventory database is on a network separate from the application server.

In these cases, the inventory adapter must be scheduled to execute on an inventory beacon in disconnected mode.

In practical terms, this means recognizing that certain steps are automatically skipped when the inventory beacon is in disconnected mode, and that alternative steps can be planned to run only in this disconnected mode to ensure that the gathered inventory is still a valid dataset.
