_ACAD Mech + ACAD Floating...

We do have 30 native ACAD licenses which we run on floating license. No we are planning to buy 5 extra ACAD Mechanicals, which we like to start also on a floating base. When there's an ACAD Mechanical installed and there's not a license free for mechanical, could these PC take at that moment a 'ordinary'-ACAD license, meaning take a license from the ordinary ACAD-FlexLM ? Thanks for answering... SMD

SMD,

 

The short answer is no; each license you pull is
tied to a serial #. So the ACAD icon will pull a Mechanical "suite"
license.

 

One way around this is 2 separate deploys on
the same client, 1 of your 5 Mechanical, 1 of your 30 ACAD.

 

The better way, however, is when you find yourself
using more Mechanical, upgrade some of the 30 ACADs to Mechanical.

 

Hope this helps.
