Patch for Windows, powered by Shavlik

How Licenses are Tracked

When a patch deployment is performed, Ivanti Patch for Windows records the machine name in the database if it does not already exist.  From there, the number of remaining seats available for deployment is reduced by one for each target. If you elect to use Ivanti Patch for Windows Agent, each agent machine is allocated a license and also counts against the total number of license seats available. If the same machine is managed in both an agentless and agent-based manner, that machine is counted only once. Similarly, when scanning virtual machines, a machine is counted only once even if it is scanned both in online (powered on) mode and offline (powered off) mode.

You can easily find out how many license seats have been used by choosing Help > About Ivanti Patch for Windows.

Power management (including Wake-on-LAN) and portions of the ITScripts function require either a Ivanti Patch for Windows Advanced license or a separate power management add-on license key if you are using Ivanti Patch for Windows Standard.
