Under the same Article Number,We have two different quantities.

 

I have these Following Questions:

  1. How can I add this license in my SAM system as there are 2 different Transaction quantities? I can't add 2 licenses with the same article Number.
  2. In the Master Catalog, Windows Server - Device CAL, System Center Endpoint Protection,System Center Configuration Manager Client ML are not in the Scope of Product for this Article Number, How valid is the Master Catalog?
  3. If I update the Scope of Product in the Master Catalog, Is this not going to be updated in the next Update of Master Catalog?
  4. Is this recommended to update the Master Catalog?
  5. Do I need to update the Contract in licenses in CA SAM everytime when the Contract Expires and the contract Moves on with a New Vendor?

Chris_Hackett Any knowledge/Suggestions around this?
