I think this has a simple answer... 


Regarding Autodesk Building Design Suite Standard, Premium and Ultimate and creating deployment(s) on a network server.


Our license holdings are a bit complex with the whole picture...


  1. Altogether, we have 9 possible AutoCAD MEP seats that could be used simultaneously (Network Licensed).
  2. The first 7 seats are in BDS Standard license.
  3. The 8th seat is in BDS Premium license
  4. And, the 9th seat is in BDS Ultimate license.


I should be able to build A SINGLE deployment from Design Suite Ultimate 'media kit' using that Serial Number. Then I can use that deployment to install ALL AutoCAD MEP installations. The license manager will deliver the licenses to the separate serial numbers, via the rules of cascading.


Is this correct?


yes that is correct
