LXCA can display individual license status for managed machines, but there is no summary table to show all of the license for now.
And for the license purchase, user still need to contact local Lenovo sales for help.
I am checking about the rest of question with development team, will get back to you as soon as possible

Regarding XClarity Pro licenses, LXCA currently does not count the number of XClarity Pro licenses that the customer has purchased.
Its assumed that the user monitors the number of machines being managed and the appropriate number of XClarity Pro licenses.
Development team have been discussions on enhancing the licensing system to do the counting and compliance checking, but I don’t have a date as to when that might be implemented yet.
LXCA connects to the Lenovo warranty service remotely, and reports the latest expiration date. If you can provide me with serial number information, I may ask the warranty server team for help to checking.

Thanks Ryan for the responses.
One query on the first response:
1) LXCA can display individual license status for managed machines, but there is no summary table to show all of the license for now.
Query: where to check/view the individual license status of the managed systems?
here is my reply to your second response:
1) It would be good if the licensing system is enhanced and we have ETA for the same to communicate with customer.
2) Regarding the warranty expiry, customer can see their system warranty status on the below portal using the serial number. but how can they check the warranty of the LXCA?

Question 1: LXCA can display individual license status for managed machines, but there is no summary table to show all of the licenses for now.
Ans 1: Please refer to the online documentation: Viewing warranty information.
Follow the steps and there's a page contains a table that lists warranty information.
Question 2: How to check the warranty of the LXCA from warrantylookup?
Ans 2: Choose Customer ID (for software entitlement) and put your Lenovo customer number in there (121XXXXXXX), and you can get the info when it expires.
Question 3: How to add any extra servers and what is the process?
