How computers are counted for licensing reports

To generate a report, the licensing report software first determines which computers in the forest are validly using Centrify software. These “valid usage” computers are considered “counted” computers. Licenses for counted computers are subtracted from the total number of available permanent workstation or server licenses, and their licensing summary information is reported in Section 1 of the licensing report.

Counted computer scenarios

A computer is counted if the following scenarios are true:

  • The computer’s zone status is Auto Zone or Zoned. This scenario applies only to computers where authentication and privilege elevation features are installed.
  • The computer has a status of Active.

Uncounted computer scenarios

Uncounted computers are included (together with counted computers) in Section 2 of the licensing report, but are not shown in Section 1 because their licenses are not subtracted from the total number of available licenses.

A computer is uncounted if any one of the following scenarios is true:

  • The computer’s zone status is Express or Unmanaged. This scenario applies only to computers where authentication and privilege elevation features are installed.
  • The computer is using an authentication and privilege elevation license, and is joined to the Null Zone. Note that computers using audit and monitoring service licenses are counted even if they are joined to the null zone.
  • The computer has a status of Inactive.
  • The computer is using an authentication and privilege elevation license, and is Orphaned (the computer profile exists in the zone but the corresponding Active Directory computer object has been removed). Note that computers using audit and monitoring service licenses are counted even if they are orphaned.
  • The computer has a Duplicated audit and monitoring service license (the audit and monitoring service agent was migrated from one installation to another, and the time stamp of the agent from the earlier installation has not expired).
  • The computer has an Unknown logon time (the computer has never joined the domain).
