License Manager Configure Service

We had LMTools already setup on our server for our version of SolidWorks.  We just switched our version of AutoCAD to Network.  I'm trying to follow these directions and it is telling me to In the Service Name text box, enter a service name, such as “Autodesk”.  I don't see an option to create a new license.  I don't want to change a license that is already in use and is working with no problems.


How do I create a new license in the LMTools to use AutoCAD.  I already have the AutoCAD license file in the License Manager folder.


I do see that SoldWorks has a different License Administrator program than LMTools.

You just simply start typing the service name in the pulldown box on Config Services tab of LMTOOLS.  It will create the new service for you. 


I have a good article on the board about combining license managers that might be of good benefit to you.  See it in my signature below!
