What do each of the three options in Product Recognition and Grouping do?

Version 1

    Details

    This article explains the function of each of the three options in the Product Recognition and Grouping setting in License Manager 3.3.


    Resolution

    This function controls the source of product family names used to group  applications in the Reconciliation Results under the Compliance tab.   The options are:

    1. NEXUS family names and ungrouped products

      This  option will set product family for all products according to rules on  our software catalog server.  Products with no rule in the catalog will  be added to the Ungrouped family.

    2. NEXUS family names and family names derived from product names

      This  option will set product family for all products either according to  rules  on our software catalog server if rules for that product exist.  If no rules exist on the catalog server product  name from the inventory tool is used.  All products will have a product family  name and there will not be an Ungrouped product family.

    3. Family names derived from product names only

      This option will set product family for all products using the product  name from the inventory tool.  All products will have a product family  name.

    In most cases HEAT Software support recommends option 2.
