Operating Instances in the License Summary Report

Updated

The Operating Instances view of the License Summary Report lists each client computer that is covered by the Operating Instances license in the CommCell environment.

To view this report, in the License Summary Report, in the Commvault Complete OI Licenses table under License, click Operating Instances.

Clients that consume the following license types are included in the OI calculation:

  • Application Class 1

  • Application Class 3

  • Application Class 2

  • Each configured NAS pseudo-client (whether a physical IP or a logical subsystem, such as an SVM)

  • Laptop and desktop

  • NDMP

  • OpenStack pseudo clients

  • Server file system

The OI calculation excludes the following:

  • CommServe Disaster Recovery (DR) nodes

  • Jobs on CommServe DR nodes from capacity

  • Cluster pseudo clients:

    • Exchange Database Availability Group (DAG)

    • SQL Always On Availability Groups (AG)

    • Oracle RAC

    • SAP HANA

    • DB2

    • MongoDB

    • Greenplum

    • Cassandra

For backup operations that include cluster clients, the cluster nodes are counted according to the following conditions:

  • All nodes that are physical machines: counted under the OI license

  • All nodes that are virtual machines: counted under the VOI and OI license

  • Nodes that are mixed (some are physical, some are virtual): counted under the OI license

After an OI/VOI license is applied to the CommCell environment, all related jobs are removed from the capacity calculation. As a result, the License Summary report does not display any jobs for the client computers that consumed OI/VOI licenses. To view the jobs that were removed from the capacity calculation, see the Usages excluded from capacity because of OI license table or the Usages excluded from capacity because of VOI license table.

Only some of the columns appear by default. You can view any additional columns by using the Columns setting.
