A couple weeks ago we updated every workstation FLEXLM_TIMEOUT value from 1000000 to 2000000. This was done as we have some offices mainly in South East Asia that we were having issues obtaining Revit licences during the busiest time of the day. Occasionly this licence timeout happens in our other APAC offices as well during this period of the day.
Changing FLEXLM_TIMEOUT to the value to 2000000 has resloved the licence timeout issue, but now I think there's a new and possibly related issue.
Up until the change in FLEXLM_TIMEOUT, I had seen a few cases where cascadeinfo.cas had been corrupted (http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?si
Has anyone else seen this? Are they related, or is it just bad timing? I'm seriously thinking of reverting FLEXLM_TIMEOUT back to 1000000 to see if the cascadeinfo.cas problem goes away.
I'd be fairly surprised if these two things were related. I've been using a value of 1000000000 nationwide and this hasn't caused any issues like what you are describing. What has happened since you posted this message? Did you find any other commonalities among users with the cascadeinfo.cas issue?
I did end up changing the value back to 1000000, and the corruption of cascacdeinfo.cas continues (mainly for Revit 2010 users, occasionly Revit 2011). So no, I do not think it is related anymore.
I wonder if the users with this issue are having difficulty closing their session of AutoCAD/Revit/Navis.
Every time that I've had to delete casecadeinfo.cas it is after the application crashed or got hung up.
