Good morning,


I'm looking to implement a number of reservations using the ADSKFLEX.OPT file by setting up a number of groups or Projects for computers.  My query is:


* Do you need to specify each version of AutoCAD, Revit etc.. so autocad 2011,2012,2013 or can I reserver 3 licensed for a HOST_GROUP to the AutoCAD suite? and Revit Strucutre Suites etc?

Yes you can specifiy the package name. It will reserve automatically for all the features within that package.


RESERVE command can be against a feature or package.


Please refer to this documentation for other commands if it accepts Feature or package

Keep in mind though that if you reserve 3 seats of the package, it will reserve 3 seats for each release, taking up essentially 12 seats.  However, you won't see this problem until a user who is not in the group tries to access a license when you have fewer than 12 seats total.  They will get denied and you won't know why until you understand this fact.
