can you not make an exception for some testing ?
We don't have any riverbed devices to run any tests here.
Make exceptions only for certain clients and ports (27000-2009,2080) to allow direct connection to the license server.
I am sure your network admin can make this rule for the testing purpose.
Here is the latest. We created the exception for the client machine and about 10 connections are made, and it takes AutoCAD 2012 over 2 minutes to open. When the exception is removed, there are about 40-50 connections, takes AutoCAD 2012 a similar amount of time to open.
AutoCAD 2011 opens in about 20 seconds. Same computer going to the same license server with the Riverbed enabled.
Let's try to isolate the License issue.
if you borrow the license (within Autocad 2012). does it start normally ?. This would tell us if the network communication is the issue.
If not, it could be something else slowing it down.
OK, thanks for testing
If you can test the behaviour with Client diagnostics log you will be able to find out which part of the license takes time.
If it is one license server on your LAN, it should not delay as you mentioned,
but if is on WAN with latency on the network, we will need to find out which part slows the packets. diagnostics log could help.
It seems we have come full circle. Implementing the variable results in the error dialogs I posted earlier in the thread, which you indicated were related to the cascading behavior of licenses.
I did get the log file if it has additional information you need. Can I email it to you rather than posting?
Sorry, I didnt ask you for the actual log earlier, you can remove the diagnostics variable;
I will open a case in your name and someone would contact you for the log.
I am not able to re-produce any of the behaviour in the lab, so It's best someone contacts you directly.
