Hello Everyone,

Please advise me for how to manage software license for each company. for example we have 3 companys in this group manage by K1000. After I import data of software license for each company already and then I create label for combine software (Because some machine use same software but difference version) and then I create software asset so the K1000 is show me all of Total license that we have and how many install but it's not show me for each company.

Answer Summary:
Create a separate ORG (database) for each company. This way the licensing (and everything else) wouldn't all bleed together. Here's KACE's feature listing on separate ORGs: http://www.kace.com/products/systems-management-appliance/features/organizational-management.aspx

If adirathore's suggestion with the domains isn't feasible, another idea would be to use a label (manual, smart or LDAP, depending on the situation - smart labels would be the fastest to setup) to tag the machines as belonging to each respective company, then reference the necessary label in your report.

  • Hi jverbosk,

    I already create label for software license by company but when I see the data K1000 with show all. Example I create Asset Type : License (Seperate by company) and create Asset Type : Software (Use Smart Lable) The K1000 it show all data come from K1000 Agent but it combine License that we have to 1 companys so I more complicate to know how many we have license spare?
  • I think I understand better after stepping through the screens you listed. If you want absolute separation between the three companies, it would probably be worth looking into creating a separate ORG (database) for each company. This way the licensing (and everything else) wouldn't all bleed together. Here's KACE's feature listing on separate ORGs:

Are the workstations in these companies present in different domains? This way you can sort the reports based on domain names and get their individual reports.
