ADLM alternate Server

I will set up multiple License servers in multiple connected LANs.
I will try ACADSERVER = server1;server2;server3 with the first server being
the one on that local LAN.
The documentation does not state exactly how this will work.

Two questions:

1. If server1 is not available, will the client contact server2 for a
license?
2. If server1 is available, but out of licenses, will the client contact
server2 for a license?

Thank You,
Steven BerkHolz

Actually, you will receive your license from the first server that responds.
We are doing this across 9 offices and the user never can tell where the
license is coming from. Sometimes, you get AutoCAD license from one office,
ldd from another and civil design from yet another depending on what is
being used where. Most of the time the user will get first response from
the local server and be licensed from there.

Thank you for the answer.
I now understand that the client queries all servers for a request.(I think
that that is what you stated)
But, I still have a question. If the first responding server answers that
no licenses are available, does the client keep waiting x seconds for a
positive result from another server, or does it fail?

Thank You,
Steven BerkHolz

As long as there is a license out there that is available on your net, you
will get a license.
