VM Entitlements

The VM Entitlements view is used to create and manage VM license entitlements, which are consumed via the license tokens. You can disable compromised license entitlements or change the configuration of a virtual machine.

The tab displays the following information:

Serial Number The serial numbers generated when you configure a VM.
License File Token The available License File Tokens that can be injected into a VM to leverage consumption entitlements.
Configuration The VM configuration assigned to the serial number.
Description The description of the entitlement you entered when the VM was created.

Termination Date

The expiry date for the token. The token can be stopped, edited, or reactivated.

Status

The license file status.

  • Active means the VM is being charged for daily consumption (PST/PDT time zone).
  • An Active status with a strikethrough indicates the entitlement is in use.
  • If the status is Stopped for the entire day, the VM will not be charged for the day.

My Assets

The My Assets view shows the Asset Folders assigned to a VM entitlement. You will only see the asset folders you have permission to view. Asset folders are created in Asset Management. Flex-VM only shows VMs inside each folder except for when creating new VMs. For information about creating Asset Folders in Asset Management, see Asset Management > Creating custom views.

 

Asset folder permissions

Asset folder permissions are assigned in Identity & Access Management. For more information about Asset Folder permissions, see Identity & Access Management (IAM) > Asset and portal permissions.

Tooltip

You can use an asset folder to request the next available serial number with the API. See, Creating a license pool group.

Decommissioned units

The Decommissioned Units view shows the VM serial numbers that were decommissioned in the Asset Management portal. When a VM is decommissioned in Asset Management, it is moved to the Decommissioned Units folder in Flex-VM and its status is changed to STOPPED. For information about decommissioning units in Asset Management, see Asset Management > Viewing decommissioned units.
