Assigning Packages to Systems

FlexNet Manager Suite collects the package consumption on a per-system basis, and this consumption is then summed for all systems—or the entire landscape—to calculate your organization’s overall package license consumption.

In SAP mode, on the package details page, you can select the SAP systems, system groups, or landscapes for which the license consumption should be calculated. This enables you to exclude specific SAP systems, system groups, or landscapes from the package calculation (the package consumption from these systems will not be included in the license position).

To assign a package to a system or system landscape:

  1. In FlexNet Manager Suite, click SAP, point to Optimization and click Packages.
  2. If you want to switch to a different landscape, click Change Landscape in the top-right corner of the page.
  3. On the SAP Packages: system landscape name page, do one of the following:
    • In the list of SAP packages, select the package that you want to assign and click Edit.
    • In the list of SAP packages, double-click the package that you want to assign.
    The SAP Package: name page displays the package details.
  4. On the SAP Package: package name page, in the Tasks section, click Set assignment to systems.
  5. In the Assign to systems dialog, select the check boxes for the systems or system landscape to which you want to assign the package (default setting: entire landscape).
  6. Click OK.
