Converting Full Install to Client Install

76 Views, 4 Replies

We currently are running standalone installations of AutoCAD 14.
We are converting to a license manager. Is there a file that I can
modify, delete or overwrite that will make the full install point to the
ADLM
instead??

Is there a manual that can be purchased/ downloaded for ADLM???

Thanks for your help.

There is no "supported" way to convert a stand alone install into an ADLM
aware install. There are some rumors that some people have made it work
without re-installing but I've not seen any detail about how, and Autodesk
won't support it anyway.

I've not seen any manual specifically for ADLM but it's really pretty
simple. Your installation guide should have a chapter on Install in and
Using Autocad on a network that will walk you thru the basic steps.

Basic things that you need to do are:
1. Install the ADLM on a machine and get the auth code from Autodesk
2. Build a Client Deployment (Follow the bouncing ball mostly, you'll
need some space on a server that everyone can get to for the "image")
3. Copy all of your customized files from the local machine to another
folder
4. Uninstall the local copies of Autocad
5. Install the client deployment to the local workstations
6. Copy your customized files back over the newly installed files (back
them up first)

Good Advice, Jason!

Michael, for additional documentation on AdLM you may want to visit
http://www3.autodesk.com/adsk/support/troubleshoot/0,,123882--125452-20022_2
1843,00.html
and
http://www3.autodesk.com/adsk/support/troubleshoot/0,,123882--125452-20021_2
1843,00.html

The first URL is the AutoCAD 2000 Network Tech doc index, the second is the
Release 14 Network index. License management issues for 2000 and Release 14
are essentially the same.

I think Autodesk has updated their site, neither of these links work.

Michael,

The links work fine. Due to the long length of the URL make sure you copy
the entire URL. The long URLs wrap and if you do not specifically copy all
the URL it will be a dead end. You can also use the search and search on the
word ADLM in the Knowledge Base.

AutoCAD® 2000 Knowledge Base Index-Network (Copy the entire URL)
http://www3.autodesk.com/adsk/support/troubleshoot/0,,123882--125452-20022_2
1843,00.html

AutoCAD® Release 14 Knowledge Base Index-Network (Copy the entire URL)
http://www3.autodesk.com/adsk/support/troubleshoot/0,,123882--125452-20021_2
1843,00.html

Cheers,
-Shaan
