Using Autodesk on the Network License Server?

I have a lab of 35 Windows 7 Enterprise x64 desktop computers.  I have successfully deployed Autodesk 2013 to each of the 35 machines.  I have also successfully deployed a network license server on one of the 35 machines.  All lab machines are able to successfully check out a license from the licensing machine.  When launching any of the Autodesk programs on the licensing machine, it cannot find itself as a licensing server.  Is using Autodesk on the network licensing server itself supported?

 

Thanks in advance.

Please add a hosts file entry for itself in that machine under C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc.

Eg.

10.145.4.202    yourserverhostname

I also have a Network License of the 2011 product that is loaded on the only station that we utilize for AutoCAD. In addition, this station is licensed with LMTOOLS to ArcInfo. No one has been able to get both licenses to work at the same time. We move the ArcInfo license manager to the server, but have not correct the issue with AutoCAD. Can anyone provide specific information on the LMTOOLS network license file that will allow AutoCAD to work on this standalone station.

Have you tried this to have multiple vendors on the same license server?
