This week, we have another expert TIP for you.
#78: Flexera FNMS website changes - check the IP addresses and the SSL Certificates now!

Flexera will be making some network changes that might affect you too. Read below to find out what changes are involved.

Flexera's websites for ARL,SKU and PURL will be updated as of June 28th 2021. FlexNet's ARL, SKU and PURL are responsible for translating scanned Inventory data into recognisable applications, as well as updating SKU numbers and the product rights library for up- and downgrades.

What will change?

Flexera will be making some network changes to www.managesoft.com and update.managesoft.com to improve availability for its customers. These will result in changes to the IP address and SSL certificates for the above domains. We recommend that you check with your network/firewall administrators to see if connections are still allowed as part of these changes.

New IP addresses:

54.204.247.103

35.172.82.165

54.172.24.197

When will the changes take effect?

Scheduled date and time:

CST: June 28th 2021 - 3:00 PM

UTC: June 28th 2021 - 8:00 PM

What should you do within your FNMS environment?

Check with your network/firewall administrators that the above sites are accessible, to see if the connections are still allowed. If necessary, adjust the new IP address and certificates.

What happens if you do nothing?

After the changes take effect, and you have not made the necessary adjustments, it is likely that ARL, SKU and PURL updates will no longer be possible per:

CST: June 28th 2021 - 3:00 PM

UTC: June 28th 2021 - 8:00 PM
