Setting up NLM hostname in Autocad 2013

Situation is this:

I made an image, but we had no idea what pc was going to be the NLM server so I didn't fill in the serverfield. Then I deployed the image to 10 pc's. I got my .lic file, set up a server. It loaded the .lic file, saw I have 10 seats so YAY.

So, when I start AutoCAD 2013 for the first time there is no "Where is your server?". Only registering or activation code.

I verified my image and it was alright (Network license checked > empty serverfield) 


Will I have to reinstall the images or am I missing something why he's not asking for a server?

if you installed as a network it shouldn't be asking for an activation code

try this enviroment variable:

That's what I thought as well. Been deploying since 2007, so I was puzzled.:smileyhappy:

Will try the environment variable tomorrow.
