Distributed Licensing

When installing you can choose a single server, distributed servers or redundant. For a business with multiple server locations 'distributed' is the way to go. This will allow users across the business to access the entire license pool.

Note that each server must be individually authorized.

Here's what you do at each machine after installing to add or remove server locations. (If it's already there then it did it automatically when installing.)
  1. In Control Panel, double-click Performance and Maintenance.
  2. Click System.
  3. On the Advanced tab, click Environment Variables.
  4. Under System Variables, click New.
  5. Enter the new environment variable name, ADSKFLEX_LICENSE_FILE.
  6. In the Variable Value field, enter an at sign (@) followed by the host name of each license server to which you want to point the client. Use a semicolon (;) to separate each server name or IP address. (This line has to be less than 256 characters.) For example:


  7. Click OK in each dialog box to close all open dialog boxes.
