    Decommissioning

    davidg5700 Specialist

      So, our company was acquired and merged into one about 4 times our size that uses SCCM.  Needless to say, the decision was made to roll our clients into SCCM.

       

      I've got the majority of the client migrated save for a smattering of difficult machines, but there is stuff that I've created over the years that I would like to be able to reference in the future.

       

      What will happen once the license has expired?  Will I still be able to open the console to view distribution packages, OSD templates etc?

       

      Going to greatly miss Landesk, though.

          Unfortunately you would not be able to continue to open the console. You will be prompted to activate the server with a valid license.

           

          It may not be a perfect solution but you could always export all of your Distribution Packages and OS Provisioning templates. They would be exported in a .LDMS or .XTP extension but you could view these files as they are just XML code to pick out bits of information you wanted from your packages/templates.

           

          Thank you for being a Ivanti customer!

            Your licenses are "perpetual", you'll be able to open your console (but your core server still needs to perform "core server activation")

            You'll be able to use your latest version bought (or renewed)

             

            Will not work anymore:

            any subscription (like download antivirus definitions and patch manager definitions)

            you can't upgrade your core server to newer version,

            you can't open a case to ivanti support

              Yep - what @amagi said is spot on.

               

              Does this answer your questions, or are there any specifics left unanswered (I'll mark Amagi's answer for now as the correct one, as all items seem to be covered).

               

              Also (to clarify) - just because the patch subscription will lapse we WON'T just wipe your existing vulnerability content / patch data -- so you'll have that stuff, if that's a concern .

                Yes, my question has been answered.  Been spending my time now in SCCM and just needed to know if I had to be proactive about archiving stuff before I no longer have the chance.

                 

                Thanks for your help.
