With PVU licensed software there is no such thing as knowing exactly what you are expected to pay for ...Some nodes registered with TSM are not being backed up and some of them are not even alive anymore. Do they still consume PVUs?
Ok, I'll check out ILMT.If you are using ILMT its agent will detect the TSM client software, whether is registered with your TSM or anyone elses TSM or not, and you will be billed for it unless you exclude it in your reports.
We were recently audited and had no problems justifying that we shouldn't pay for dead nodes or for nodes that were not in production anymore and not backed up, but still accessible on the network.
