Dear Autocad Expertise,
Recently , we have upgraded the Autocad ARS 2009 network version to Autocad BSD 2013. ARS is obsolete and the replacement is BSD. (Told by reseller).
Here in the license file, I can only see the product "85946BDSPRM_2013_0F" under the BSD package "85787BDSPRM_F" . Here I would like to konw if "85946BDSPRM_2013_0F" already represented the product "85871ACD_2013_0F" ?
In previous ARS 2011 / 2009 , there are a product "85536ACD_2011_0F" / "57600ACD_2009_0F" . Any Autocad 2011 or 2009 client connected to the server, it will consume this product license.
In the new BSD 2013, if there is a Autocad 2013 client connecting to the server , will it consume 1 lic in the product "85946BDSPRM_2013_0F"?
Thank you very much in advance.
AutoCAD 2013 will use a Building Design Suite license per the cascading effect of network licensing. You can see how all the products cascade in 2013 products via this link:
Your Subscription 2013 product will allow you to run 2013, 2012, 2011, and 2010. Your 2009 is retired. You cannot run more applications than the maximum seats that you own.
Yes. If the cascade is available for the product it will use the available license in the NLM. If you have vanilla AutoCAD, it will pull the Building Design Suite Premium license, if available. The report log will likely only show the license that was pull, regardless of product. You'd have to ask Jimmy directly on the behavior of his software.
