Legal Technical Question

Here's the scenario.
A corperations CAD department shares drawings with customers. The
customers insist that the drawing be in R14 format.
They have to create these drawings using R14 based software (not
migration assistance or saveas.)
Currently this corperation has 20 seats of LDD R1, which they are
deploying from the network using AdLM and a liscence authorization code
obtained from Autodesk.
They upgrade their installation to LDD R2, uninstall AdLM, install
the new version of AdLM for AutoCAD 2000, and then call Autodesk to
obtain a new authorization code. The network administrator enters the
code and AdLM reports back that they have 20 seats of LDD R2 to float
around.
first question: does the new version of AdLM change the server code?

second question: what would happen if they added the LDD R1
authorization code to the license pool(assuming the server code had not
changed?)
third question: is it permissable to have both sets of Auth Codes
so long as no more than 20 licences are running concurrently?
fourth question: is there any technology in place or supported by
AdLM to facillitate this type of installation?
Your insights and knowledge are sollicited and welcome and don't worry,
this is all strictly hypothetical.

John,

The AutoCAD license agreement allows a specific transition period where both
the new and the old versions may be run together. After the transition
period expires, the old version must be removed. For specifics, see the
UPGRADES section of the AutoCAD license agreement..

As for how to implement this transition period, contact your Autodesk dealer
who can assist you or obtain assistance from Autodesk Product Support for
you on this issue.
