Parameter: usagehubaddress

Startup parameters change the behavior of the HPE Service Manager server. You can always set a startup parameter from the server's operating system command prompt.




This parameter defines the IP address or fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the HPE Usage Hub host. Once this parameter is correctly defined, the Service Manager Server automatically sends license information and license usage to HPE Usage Hub at a predefined interval.

For more information, see Integrate with HPE Usage Hub for license monitoring.
