Applies to: Provance 2016 Standard and Enterprise

On Service Manager Consoles with Provance 2016 installed, the Provance Product Licensing module only display Provance ITAM 2012 and Data Management Pack (V2.0) licenses. This is expected behavior.

Root Cause:

The licensing paradigm of Provance ITAM 2016 (V3.1) has changed from that of Provance ITAM 2012 (V2.0). In fact the Provance Product Licensing module only exists in a Provance ITAM 2016 installation when the Provance DMP (V2.0) tool is also installed.

The essential reason is that Provance licensing is stored and used differently in Provance ITAM 2016. New classes have been created to facilitate the new paradigm. They are separate and distinct from the old classes that exist to support the DMP tool.

Resolution:

Note: Before updating, repairing or making significant changes to System Center Service Manager

or Provance, read and follow the Best Practices for Applying Service Packs, Hotfixes and Security Patches.
