2015.2 Licensing - Vivado License Manager (VLM) will show a license as Borrowable when it is in a disabled state on the server

Description

In the Vivado License Manager (VLM) GUI, in the Borrow/Restore panel, a license which is disabled on the server still appears as borrowable. 
 
I would expect these disabled licenses to appear as grayed out and Not Borrowable, or not to appear in VLM at all?

Solution

This is a visual issue in the VLM GUI. 

If you select a disabled license and attempt to borrow it, the VLM will detect the problem and return an appropriate error message to the GUI.

The information is then displayed correctly in the status column of the confirmation dialog.

This should not be a common use case since most return transactions will be processed and the license would not normally be left in a Disabled state. 

However, in Vivado 2015.3, this license state will be more clearly represented.
