Warning message "You have reached your asset license limit of 5. You have 45 used" since update

I have updated my K1000 appliance to version 7.0.121306, but now I get a warning on login:

"You have reached your asset license limit of 5. You have 45 used"

Is there new licensing requirements on k1000? I have a lot more than 45 assets in the system and never had issues on the previous K1000 builds.

Anyone else have this issue?

This is a change with version 7 we have seen it with a number of customers, they have unlimited asset licenses in 6.4 but once they update to v7 they are restricted to 5 asset licenses, labelled as Chromebook and Network Devices. This has been coming for a while, I figured that the introduction of Asset packs was just the "thin end of the wedge" from a licensing perspective and at some stage charging for Assets would kick in. So with version 7 we reach the "thick end" in that if you want to have an asset linked to an inventory item (that is not imported via the API or mobile integration) then you will need an asset pack license for that device.

This will only effect you if you want to manage your devices, or obtain data i.e. page count, toner from printers using oids or settings from switches etc. If however you just want to manage the life-cycle of your asset, so you know who has it, where it is, what it does and if it's live then you can just create an asset record without the need for an inventory item or an asset pack license, much how we do it with our BarKode product.

Top Answer

With the 7.0 the licensing model, which has started with 6.0 is forced.
You have different license packs:
Nodes (which are computers, managed by agent or agentless) and Assets (for others)

Go to the big Question mark in the right corner and click about.
You will see something like that:
License Usage/Capacity:
Managed Computers: 16/100, Monitored Servers: 3/5, Chromebooks & Network Devices: 5/5

There you can see your licensed functions.
You should contact your sales rep.
SMal.tmcc has brought the correct licenses obviously (if he renewed his licenses in the last two years this is automaticly done)

Interesting, I did read an article that Quest would honour the current number of licenses you were using prior to upgrading.

Have they changed their mind on this?

I was beta testing V7 for a couple of months and never ran into any changes in the licensing.
