When I am adding a IBM PVU based licenses in SLM, I am not getting PVU as a license metric in drop down to select. Is there any other way to add PVU/UVU/RVU based licenses?
first you must change the License metric in your applikation
if you already have a license for your application, you can not change the metric anymore.
First delete your license, then you can switch your application to PVU.
IN SLM go to Home /Import Data and select update existing Computers
Use your csv or Excel file as source.
Thanks for your detailed inputs on this topic Detlev.
I am not able to see PVU as an option to select for Metric under Edit Application.
You are looking in the right place and this is where you would change a application metric prior to loading a license.
However, if you have already loaded a License against that application using a installation metric as in your case, the metrics available to the application level are limited to a sub group based upon the License metric previously entered.
What you will need to do is remove all the current Licenses allocated to that application, go back into the application where you should now be able to select PVU. Once you have the correct application metric you can then load your license entitlement correctly.
Please note however that to report a position with a PVU metric you must have ILMT data, and if you have the ILMT connection providing data prior to uploading any licenses it will automatically update the metric of the relevant applications to PVU
Hope that helps
