complex License file issues

we have a complex lience file of

 

autocad (2008-2013)

3dsmax (2008-2011)

revit (2010-2013)

 

and all was working well until we added MEP to the mix.. now vanila revits nic the MEP lience. and if i reseve it for the MEP machines it reserves the 3dsmax + others as well..

 

do i need seperate servers, etc.. or can these liences be combined.. (with out the dark art of casscade)

Newer licenses with cascade will supersede older licenses.  To properly combine them, you will have to regenerate your older license files on the same date as the newer ones.  Otherwise, this will never work.  Subscription files will automatically supersede pre-existing older licenses.  Thus a 2013 license file will supersede any existing 2012, 2011, and 2010 file from the same package.  This is by design.  You cannot launch more than the number of seats you own total, regardless of release year.  If you have one seat of Revit, for example, you cannot simply launch five seats from 2008 to 2012.  You can only launch one.

i know that :smileyhappy:

 

but for example i have 2 max license and buy a MEP building suite license (which includes a copy of max)... so that means 3 licenses... correct?

 

But if you open MEP on any machine it nabs the max license and no-one can open max on any other machine.. and thats not right?

Better to think of that combination of licenses as "2 3DSMAX + 1 BDS".  Its easy to get into the habit of thinking "I have 3 MAX licenses and 1 MEP" and get frustrated trying to figure out why somebody can't get into MEP, or why only two people can run MAX.
