Building design suite license

Hopefully this is the right forum for this question.

 

I have a network license for 2 seats of Building Design Suite and 3 seats for Revit Architecture.  It seems that BDS will only use the BDS license but the revit architecture will use what ever is open.  Is there a way for BDS to use what ever is open or confine revit architecture to only use revit architecture licenses?

or you could split the license file up to 2 separate single license servers

1 for the revit arch license and 1 for the Building design licenses

no you can't change the cascading rules

what you can do is reserve licenses for a specific user using an options file

easier of the two solutions, but not what I was looking for.  This will have to do until we upgrade all the machines to building design suites.

 

Thanks for all the help everybody.
