Distributed Licenses

Is there a way to incorporate the distributed licenses in an Acad 2002 image? I have a variety of Map, Mech, Land, & 2002 licenses divided across 2 license servers. I have created images for deployment but the .lic file only records a single license server during the image creation. I would like include the modified .lic file in my images. I could push the .lic file after the initial installation but I would rather do it all in 1 shot. Thanks

I don't think that the licpath.lic file supports the distributed server model. I think that you need to take a look at setting
environment variables rather than the licpath.lic file.

To include this in a "distribution" you could write a batch file that first runs a reg file before beginning the acad installation.

The batch file would look something like

@echo off
regedit /s \\servername\sharename\license.reg
\\servername\sharename\deployfolder\setup.exe
cls

and the reg file should look something like

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment]
"LM_LICENSE_FILE"="@server1:@server2"

The licpath.lic does support the distributed server model. I have tested it with the above AutoCAD modules and the failover works great. The only problem that I have noticed is that it dosen't reset to the first server the next time that you start a session. It hangs on to the last good license server. Creating a bat file is a good idea and that is most likely what I will do.
