Problems created by having AutoCad 2010 licenses on two servers

We're four months into this issue with no resolution in sight. Any and all help appreciated.

 

Background: Server Alpha has 9 AutoCad 2010 license and LMT running. User in two offices (local and a branch) log on fine. Ports are open and no firewall is in place.

 

Late last year a "bundled" package was purchased. This included REVIT 2012 and additional network and subscription licenses for AutoCad 2010. Vendor said we could put this all in one license file on Server Alpha and we'd now enjoy 13 AutoCad 2010 users, plus the additional products we purchased.

 

Well, that didn't work.

 

So, per their recommendations, we put a license file on Server Beta. This one holds REVIT, plus the additional 4 Arch2010. We made changes to each user's environmental variables so Server Alpha was selected first and if no license was available for Arch2010, then a license would be pulled from Server Beta. 

 

Well, that didn't work also.

 

Round two. Extend the timeout to 100000. Modify Licpath.lic so the users point to one server or the other as their default. Well, no luck either.

 

Again, any and all suggestion welcome as this has been a huge production disruption.

What problems did you get when you tried to use both licenses on the first server?

When we used a combined license for all AutoCad products, we ended up exactly where we are now. Once we had 9 logins, we could not get the additional 4 issues. Had to jump through the same hoops of having staff log out.

 

thanks for asking.

Did you get the licenses files generated on the same day so that they cascade into one another?

 

Also I was advised to place the suite license after the main AutoCAD license in the license file on the server.

 

Finally what sort on numbers did the Perform Status Enquiry give on the AutoCAD 2010 feature Users of 71200ACD_2010_0F:?

It appears the license file was generated same day. See below. Regarding the status inquiry, we would receive a "8 of 9 " issued as one user had borrowed a license. I inserted X and Y for server, serial number and mac address info, fyi.

Did you run the Perform Status Enquiry with just the suite license on the server to see that it was reporting correctly?

 

Also the initial inquiry seems to be off when you run it as it only reports AutoCAD 2012 license numbers you have to

scroll down to get the correct count for 2011, 2010 and 2009 ours reports 40 2012 licenses but as we scroll down it then hits 46 when it then decides to add in the 6 suite licenses for the other versions.

 

Also we help we discovered that AutoCAD 2012 won’t pull a license from the server if it hasn’t been installed from the suite using its serial number.

We have two Suite users. In the middle of this trouble, I was able to determine via the status inquiry that there were 2 available, 2 issued. But, the license file was in the combined file, not just the only thing on the server.

 

I believe I understand your point about the count. I'll check this out with our AutoCad reseller support techs who have been working on this for us.  I have a meeting tomorrow and I'll see what they say.

One other thing did the license tools on the server get upgraded to the latest version?

 

Also have you tried stacking the licence file with the AutoCAD at the top and the suites at the bottom?
