There are three ways to find this information:

1) From the SMP Console you can simply add the machine's resource GUID value at the end of the link below:
 
 
2) From the Console go to Manage > Computers search for the computer Name then Right-click, select
Resource Manager for that particular system, and go to Summaries > Filter Summary.

You may notice a few changes in the Endpoint Management Community product names. We've updated the product names to align more closely with what appears on the Symantec.com site as well as the terms that Symantec Support use. Product descriptions have also been updated. These changes offer a better description of what the product does and in some cases indicates a product's End of Life (EOL) status.

All forums and threads are still available and searchable. We hope you find these changes helpful.

Yesterday I was looking at my SMP licensing using SIM (the Symantec Installation Manager) and I was troubled that certain licenses might not be applying correctly.

So, I decided to take a look at the installed licenses through an alternative route, the RemoveLicense.exe utility which is located in C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\Bin\Tools

When I loaded it though, I got a dialog displaying the following error,

Can not get the license
System.Exception: Certificate Chain is invalid.
  at RemoveLegacyLicense.LegacyLicenseUtil.Verify(X509Certificate2certificate)
  at RemoveLegacyLicense.LegacyLicenseUtil.GetLegacyLicenses()

This is a known issue, and Altiris Support directed me to this SMP 7.0 and 7.1 tech note TECH198685,

This cites the following,

Migration: A migration is when you install the latest version of the IT Management Suite solutions on a new server, and then migrate the data from the earlier ITMS solutions to the latest version of the application.

Upgrade: An upgrade is when you install the latest version of ITMS on the same hardware, server operating system, and database.

You must migrate the Notification Server 6.x or 7.0 data to either Notification Server 7.1 SP2 or Notification Server 7.5. After migrating the data, you must first upgrade to either ITMS 7.1 SP2 MP1.1 or ITMS 7.5 HF6 depending on the path you choose and then upgrade to ITMS 7.5 SP1.

The following diagram gives an overview of the migration and upgrade process:
