Hello Snow Community,
What is the difference between Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 vs Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 standard in the Snow License Manager?
if you have a look into our application definitions, you can see, that different triggers result in the two application entries in Snow License Manager.
Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 will be displayed, when our Inventory Agent reacts to a .exe file, which meets the defined criteria.
Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 Standard will be displayed, when our Inventory Agent reacts to a Registry Entry, which meets the defined criteria.
As this information is very vague, please have a look into the application definitions in your Snow Management and Configuration Center (SMACC). Go to Snow License Manager -> Software recognition -> Application definitions.
Why are you receiving the entry Microsoft Exchange Server 2016? Simply because this/these system(s) are lacking the registry keys, which are defined in the application definitions. To become compliant, you have to make sure, the registry key is in place. Otherwise, you can deploy a dummy registry key to the machines and manually set up a recognition rule.
I hope, I could enlighten you on this topic. Please let me know, if you need further information.
I think I need a little more information.
Our internal SME is telling me we do not have anything but enterprise edition on our environment and a number triple to that which Snow is showing. This is quite concerning to me when a software product from a vendor like Microsoft is not being shown correctly. He is also stating registry key is a term he is not familiar with in reference to Exchange. Is this Snow specific terminology or could you possibly go in to what that is showing and what is means from a compliance standpoint?
Hi Sean, we had the same issue which I reported to Snow and they provided us with a dedicated script which is run by the Snow 3.x agent and pulls the correct information from our Exchange servers so SLM7 is able to show us the correct Exchange editions.
