              Admin Issues

               Issue                    Description

               IOB-000058780            Communication version is unknown; Agent version was not recognized.
                                        Agent Version: 3.5.0 67999




FlexNet Manager 12.0.0.5 Release Notes (11-February-2010)                                                            3
              Reporting Issues

               Issue Number             Description

               IOC-000084424            Aggregation performance may slow down dramatically for organizations
                                        with more than 15,000 users.

               IOC-000084349            FlexNet Manager aggregation calculation is not correct for features that have
                                        the same name, but belong to different vendors.

               IOC-000084348            Number of opened cursors exceeds the configured limit in Oracle during
                                        aggregation.

               IOC-000084297            Organization structure XML import operation may time out for structures with
                                        more than 10,000 users.

               IOC-000084295            LAST_AGGREGATION_COMMIT_TIME of the Aggregation History report shows
                                        misleading data. The time should indicate progress on the usage data time
                                        line, rather than the current commit time of the aggregation process.

               IOC-000084294            FlexNet Manager Redo Rollup: Job still shows as “Pending” after it has
                                        launched.

               IOC-000084293            Large usage data set aggregation may fail with “tempdb out of space” error.



FlexNet Manager 12.0.0.4 Resolved Issues
              The FlexNet Manager 12.0.0.4 patch addressed both Admin and Reporting module issues.


              Admin Issues

               Issue                    Description

               IOB-000058043            Agent registration process times out and triggers “options file not found”
                                        error.




FlexNet Manager 12.0.0.5 Release Notes (11-February-2010)                                                               4
              Reporting Issues

               Issue Number             Description

               IOA-000049479            After creating one organizational structure and running aggregation, if the
                                        user creates another organizational structure and re-runs aggregation,
                                        FLEXnet Manager does not pick up the newly created organizational
                                        structure and does not aggregate the data for the new organizational
                                        structure.

               IOA-000049164            Due to memory consumption, the client records cache in FLEXnet
                                        Manager’s report data loader may slow the report log import process or
                                        trigger an OutOfMemory error.

               IOB-000058029            Report log import fails when a report log’s feature line contains a long list of
                                        HOSTID values.

               IOA-000049651            FLEXnet Manager may under-report usage when reporting on multiple
                                        license servers due to inaccurately applying duplicate grouping calculation.



FlexNet Manager 12.0.0.3 Resolved Issues
              The FlexNet Manager 12.0.0.3 patch addressed Reporting module issues.


               Issue                    Description

               IOA-000046096            Reports show negative availability and usage if the number of licenses for
                                        the feature is greater than 32000.

               IOB-000057195            Reports are missing usage information for features with multiple versions.

               IOA-000046414            Usage Summary Reports show zero availability for unused features when
                                        they are configured to describe features by “feature name and version” or
                                        “feature name and license key”.

               IOA-000045985            Failed to import the report logs with feature lines containing a long vendor
                                        string

               IOA-000045471            Availability values missing from data warehouse if a section does not span
                                        an hour.

               IOB-000056747            Multiple Filters with User IDs do not work.

               Issue                    Description

               IOA-000046782            Error - “java.lang.NullPointerException” when running Usage Summary
                                        Report.

               IOA-000046919            •    Failed to create raw report if the configuration includes only Denied and/
                                             or Exception events.
                                        •    Raw report fails to report on Denied and Exception events if the
                                             configuration includes all Used, Queued, Denied and Exceptions
                                             events.

               IOA-000047200            Unsupported events after features had expired could cause Usage
                                        Summary Report to stop responding (or “hang”).

               IOA-000047084            Usage Summary report displays extra “[Feature Name] NONE” tables for
                                        denied events when they are configured to describe features by “feature

FlexNet Manager 12.0.0.1 Resolved Issues

              Reporting Issues

               Issue Number             Description

               IOA-000045519            Due to an issue with the report data loader, reports show incorrect
                                        availability for report logs that contain licenses with packages and
                                        components.

               IOA-000045328            Ultimate denials were missing in Usage Summary Report.

               IOA-000045440            Raw reports show incorrect date/times when multiple reports run
                                        concurrently.

                                        not occur with fresh install of 12.0.

               IOA-000045855            Report data aggregation (roll up) of more than 100 report log files causes an
