License issues after adding 1 license upgrade for Building Design Suite

On the License manager we have upgraded 1 AutoCad license to a Building Design Suite license.

Besides this license we have licenses for Revits Structure Suites and single AutoCad

Now I have the following problem.

I have not yet installed software from the BDS, so all users have Revit form a Revit Structure Suite and AutoCad from the single software package of AutoCad.

Some users are asking for a Autocad 2011 License from the BDS and are not getting it because the one license is already taken.

They are not handed a license from the Revit Strcuture Suite or Autocad Package.

see captured dubug.log file:

8:39:43 (adskflex) DENIED: "85787BDSPRM_F" akr@IMDPC13  (Licensed number of users already reached. (-4,342))  

8:39:43 (adskflex) DENIED: "85536ACD_2011_0F" akr@IMDPC13  (Licensed number of users already reached. (-4,342))  

8:39:45 (adskflex) DENIED: "85787BDSPRM_F" AY@CZC0351JHG  (Licensed number of users already reached. (-4,342:10053 ""))  

8:39:45 (adskflex) DENIED: "85536ACD_2011_0F" AY@CZC0351JHG  (Licensed number of users already reached. (-4,342:10053 ""))  

8:39:48 (adskflex) DENIED: "85787BDSPRM_F" hr@IMDPC03  (Licensed number of users already reached. (-4,342))  

8:39:48 (adskflex) DENIED: "85536ACD_2011_0F" hr@IMDPC03  (Licensed number of users already reached. (-4,342))

 

 

 

What I do see is that in the license file the Package nrs from the BDS and AutoCad are the same:

 

BDS License:

PACKAGE 85787BDSPRM_F adskflex 1.000 COMPONENTS="85946BDSPRM_2013_0F \  85787BDSPRM_2012_0F 85837NAVSIM_2012_0F 85536ACD_2011_0F \  85652BDSPRM_2011_0F 85503MAXDES_2011_0F 85561ARCHDESK_2011_0F \  85595STRDET_2011_0F 85562BLDSYS_2011_0F 85607SHOWCASE_2011_0F \  85615ALSK_2011_0F 85543REVITST_2011_0F 85541RVTMPB_2011_0F \  85614RVTMPJ_2011_0F 85601NAVSIM_2011_0F 85594REVSU_2011_0F \  71200ACD_2010_0F 82200STRDET_2010_0F 72200ARCHDESK_2010_0F \  70000MAXDES_2010_0F 74100REVIT_2010_0F 73800RVTMPJ_2010_0F \  73000BLDSYS_2010_0F 82400RVTMPB_2010_0F 71500NAVSIM_2010_0F \  74000REVSU_2010_0F" OPTIONS=SUITE SUPERSEDE ISSUED=23-Apr-2012 \

 

AutoCad License:

PACKAGE 64300ACD_F adskflex 1.000 COMPONENTS="85871ACD_2013_0F \  85730ACD_2012_0F 85536ACD_2011_0F 71200ACD_2010_0F" \  OPTIONS=SUITE SUPERSEDE ISSUED=11-Apr-2012 SIGN="02A7 1D2E \  362D 9FC2 6F78 948A 03CD 678D 8469 6599 F632 EA28 92DA 2BA1 \  21FF 145D C4B9 C5FD 39BE 2CE3 7F7C 2C78 142C 29FD 8197 963C \  C0B2 7079 E10D B9AE" SIGN2="1CC5 B2A9 D4EF 32D4 A340 8683 B461 \  6630 8EE2 20A2 26B3 86ED CED3 6738 078D 1119 4F44 4CC0 9651 \  8A38 B312 BD54 7500 AFB9 5A25 8750 41A4 A1A7 F7F0 7ABA"

 

How can I prevent users to look to the BDS license and not getting one of the other available licenses.

How do I prevent users to get a license from the highest Suite instead from the lowest suite.

If I want to use one of the additional BDS programs like 3DSMax the license for the BDS will be taken by a standard Autocad user instead of a normal Autocad licens, this way the BDS licens will never be available for 3DSMax

 

Best regards,

first thing i would try is to generate the whole license file on the same day

and see if that fixes the issue

Darren is right.  Give that guy Kudos.  I would suspect that your debug log file contains errors about features being superseded by others.  To properly combine a Subscription license with cross over products, you have to generate both licenses on the same date.
