How to identify Insight Control managed systems

A question from Manuel:

 

*************

 

Is there any way to know if a particular system, given its serial number, is being managed by Insight Control? I mean, is there a “portal”, central database or something like that?

I have a customer that is paying a license of Insight Control, but does not know if it is being used or not.

This customer is a huge government department with many datacenters, so my other option is to ask one after another and hope that some of them answers me.

 

Thanks in advance.

Here are a few options that might help.

You also can retrieve licenses from a SIM server via the dbo.lmLICENSESTATUS or dbo.LMCertificateList tables in the Insight DB being used.

Any other suggestions?
