Adding deployments

The License Usage Collection Utility supports two models for deployment:  1) The license utility installed on one computer and the BMC product installed on another and accessed remotely, or 2) The license utility installed on the same computer as the BMC product. For BSA, ARS, and BPM Portal, see the following instructions for Windows servers where the license utility and the BMC product are installed on the same computer.

Note

In order to run license reports, the BMC product name must be listed in the Select Deployments list on the License Reports tab.  If the product is not listed, see the following instructions.
