License Management now available for Operating Systems in v12.2.0

We are pleased to announce that License Management features similar to the ones that previously were available for software are now available for operating systems. See details on this feature and a number of minor features and bug fixes below…

OS License Management


The Operating system menu now has two new options. Clicking the OS License Models menu option will show available OS license models…


When you add an OS Licensing model, you will see a similar set of options as you see when you add a Software Licensing Model.

If you click the Operating Systems In Use menu entry, you will see a list operating systems by device.


The only difference is that there is no user-based licensing for operating systems.

Additional Features in v12.2.0

A number of additional minor features have been added in v12.2.0:

The subnet Add page now has an option to populate IP addresses and mark them as available when creating a subnet.

The Appliance Manager “Optimize” command now allows you to delete all audit data by entering 0 months into the input field.
