License Manager Changes ?

90 Views, 2 Replies

With AutoCAD 2000 products when you added 5 LDT or ADT to the license manager you actually added 5 licenses to AutoCAD 2000 and 5 to ADT or LDT. When a client started LDT/ADT you pulled one AutoCAD 2000 and one LDT/ADT license.

With AutoCAD 2000i products the licenses stay distinct - i.e. if you add 5 LDT/ADT you make no change to the number of AutoCAD 2000i licenses. When a client starts LDT/ADT they only pull a LDT/ADT license.

Do I understand this correctly? Has this changed?

Any input is greatly appreciated.

That's what I understand also. I have my codes for i and now only have the
distinct numbers that I actually bought. Much simpler to decipher!

Perhaps simpler to decipher, but much less flexible and posing a significant
licensing "hit" on companies that use multiple "flavors" of AutoCAD, such as
LDD and ADT, on the ADLM.

Example: if I have 60 plain AutoCAD license + 10 LDDs. In effect, I have 70
AutoCAD licenses on ADLM. So if some of my Civil engineers aren't using LDD
on a given day, the associated AutoCAD licenses can "float" on the ADLM to
be available to my pool of regular AutoCAD users... a flexible and cost
effective method to balance the # of licenses needed against the peak
concurrent license-demand. In the new scheme (if indeed it's true), it
would mean that a LDD user's associated AutoCAD license becomes "locked up"
with LDD and cannot "float" and be used by a plain AutoCAD user if
necessary.

This sounds like a huge step backwards in my opinion, and would force the
purchase of additional licenses... more cost and license inefficiency for
the customer, more $$$ for Autodesk.
