Corrections in Snow License Manager 9.3.3:

  • The AD user login is now checking the validation dates for the mentioned user updated in SMACC (PRB0042429).

  • You can now link a Hyper-V Windows virtual machine to its host based on the data inventoried on the virtual machine itself (PRB0042336, PRB0042391).
