AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 and 2012 on licensing server

Hello, I am an IT specialist for a local company, however my knowledge of Autodesk products is limited and most of what is currently set up was inplace before I arrived in the picture.

 

We have an AutoDesk licensing server (single) that has been serving AutoCAD Civil 3D 2012 licenses without issue.  We recently purchased some Civil 3D 2013 licenses and when I added them to the .lic file on the server all of the 2012 licenses stopped working.

 

Note, there are reservations involved in this setup (which theoretically are reservering the 2013 licenses for a group of users).

 

What is the proper way to add 2013 licenses without breaking the 2012 licenses?

 

Any and all help is much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Adam

if all the licenses are on a current subscription

is their any reason why you can't generate a 2014 license

but keep the products at the version they are at currently

Thank you for this link. I thought I was combining the files correctly, but now see this:

To properly combine identical products, all license files for that product must be created on the same date.

Am I able to recreate the older 2012 licenses file so that is created on the same date as the 2013?

What does that mean or how can I find out? I was handed serial numbers and a product key, but was not involved in the purchasing of anything.

I do feel like I saw that term used somewhere though.

you need to find out all of this first before doing anything else

i suggest you talk to whoever handles purchasing in your company and find out who they brought the licenses from

I believe that they are as my license files have the PACKAGE portion included.

if thats the case the 2013 license will be replacing the 2012 license

so you don't need to do the 2012 license file again just do the 2013 license file and the 2012 licenses will be included
