Reporting to Ivanti License Server

This feature becomes available when the Ivanti License Server is released.


At Topology > Dispatchers, you can assign the Licensing role to one or more Dispatchers, so you will have control over which Dispatcher will communicate with the Ivanti License Server. Only one Dispatcher will be responsible for collection and reporting the peak usage of Datacenter Server and Desktop ASP and Corporate licenses at one time.

Configuration

At Topology > Dispatchers, on the Settings tab of the Dispatcher’s properties, you enable the setting Licensing to assign the Licensing role to the selected Dispatcher. To enable the setting for multiple Dispatchers, you can also use the option Change settings of selected Dispatchers from the context menu or settings overview. The same procedure applies to disable the Licensing role.

Execution of collecting and/or reporting task

The Dispatcher will check every 60 seconds if it needs to take over the collecting and/or reporting task. Depending on the configuration of the Dispatchers, several scenarios are possible:

  • One or more Dispatchers have been assigned the Licensing role and (some of them) are online: The first available Dispatcher with the Licensing role will run or take over the collecting and/or reporting task.
  • All Dispatchers that have been assigned the Licensing role are offline: The first available Dispatcher will run or take over the collecting task. The reporting task cannot be done. A warning message will be shown when the Console user logs in.
  • No Dispatchers have been assigned the Licensing role: The first available Dispatcher will run or take over the collecting task. The reporting task cannot be done. A warning message will be shown when the Console user logs in.

See License usage collection and reporting for more information on calculation, timing and sequence of tasks.

Overview Licensing role

Depending on the scenario a different value will be shown in the column Roles in the Dispatchers overview. That way you can see which of the Dispatchers are currently performing the reporting tasks. The values for this column are:
