"Backup" server for IV11?

70 Views, 2 Replies

Is it possible to have the license of networked seats pointing to 2 servers for a license in case one (the main license server) goes down, they can still grab a license but on the "backup" server?

Is that even possible? You know, to have the same licenses loaded on 2 different servers?

Our main cad server's unable to connect to the network and thus no one can access anything on this server until it's reconnected. We're dead in the water.

Any suggestions?

This is covered in the documentation. It can be accessed from the
installation media, by selecting Network install.

Also look in the autodesk.autocad.network news group. Inventor shares the
AutoCAD network licensing technology.
