To manage software licenses, you must add a license to a software product. This action lets you keep track of whether the licenses are over deployed or under deployed. It also lets you keep track of the license type, renewal cost, and details about the software purchase. In the Software view, software products that you license appear in the Licensed, Adobe, and Microsoft saved searches in the Installed Software subpane.
The primary tasks that you can perform to manage software licenses are as follows:
In the software details pane, click Manage Licenses.
The Licenses tab in the Software Product dialog box opens with Licensable product selected.
Deselect Licensable product.
The toolbar on the Licenses tab is now inactive.
When you select the software in the list pane in the Software view, the licenses graph in the software details pane no longer displays your licenses as under deployed or over deployed. The license usage bar in the flipbook is always at zero, in the center of the bar.
To license a software product
In the Symantec Management Console, on the Manage menu, click Software.
Use the saved searches in the navigation pane and the search features in the list pane to find the software that you want to license.
