Adjusting the Environment Usage Setting

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

By default, all inventory devices are listed for production use. Where Oracle is installed in an environment other than production (for example, “Test”), Flexera recommends updating the inventoried device’s role, which automatically adjusts the license consumption within FlexNet Manager Suite, as well as updating the files exported for delivery to Oracle License Management Services.

To adjust the inventory device role:

  1. Go to Discovery & Inventory > Oracle Instances.
  2. Select the Oracle server to open the inventory device properties.
  3. On the General tab, select the appropriate device role value (for example, Test) to update the default Production device role.
  4. Save the updated properties.
  5. In the License Compliance menu, click Reconcile. (Either wait for an overnight reconcile, or if you have Administrator access, reconcile immediately. Restrict the reconcile to Oracle only by deselecting Reconcile all publishers.)
  6. Perform an Oracle GLAS data export. (Refer to the Oracle Instances topic in the online help for FlexNet Manager Suite for instructions.)
    ORCL_OVERVIEW will now reflect the updated environment usage for the Oracle Database installation on that server.
