Hi. I am a new LAN Admin at my company and a group of users that now have R14 running
with AutoDesk License Manager want an upgrade to 2000i. They finally produced a box with
media and seiral number and key code, but the box has a shipping address of another
department within the company. How can I tell what kind of license this box represents and
how can I tell if it has already been installed?

I have found our vendor and they indicated the date of purchase, the department
name, and the individual name it was ordered under. They also indicated that the
license had not been registered yet. Now, if I could get some good instructions on
the installation. The .hlp files on the CD are not very helpful to an AutoCAD novice
like me. Could someone point me towards some documents that descrive how to
migrate from R14 to 2000i? We are also using AutoDesk License Manager on a
Novell 4.x/5.x mixed network with NT4 on the desktop. Thanks.

I am not an expert at networks. But I do know that you have to
uninstall the current ADLM software before you install the new product. You
should read the installation guide that is on the CD, there is a chapter
for network installations. If it was me I would browse through the current
set-up on the server and get familiar with it, before I tried to uninstall it.
Then you would want to install the new product.

 

Before you register the software you must install the product.
To register the software you would go to
href="http://www.autodesk.com/register">www.autodesk.com/register
.
You will need the serial number and the server code (use the
ADLM Admin tool to obtain the code - be aware that the server code is linked to
the server name). You will also need the serial number of your previous AutoCAD
version and license pack(s).

 

There should be a red & white document in the box labeled
"Read This First". Read it and pay special attention to the paragraphs marked
"Network Versions".

 

There is a white page in the Autodesk KnowledgeBase on setting
up the ADLM. Go to www.autodesk.com then
click on support, you should get to a menu that says knowledgebase somewhere on
it. Click on knowledgebase then browse for network.

 

Another suggestion would be to call your Autodesk
Reseller (vendor) and see if they can give you any tips.
