Our network license is for 7 Revit Structural Suites 2014 and 2 Acad 2014.

We currently use 2012 ACAD and 2011-2013 Revit Structure. 

8 computers access ACAD 2012 through a Revit Structure 2012 installation and Revit's ACAD 2012 shortcourt, and 1 computer  access ACAD 2012 through a regular ACAD 2012 installation. All are installations runs on a network license.

 

We typically run 2-3 Revits of different flavors (2011-2014) at a time and the balance of of the users run ACAD 2012. Lateley an error code-4.132.0. "a valid license could not be obtained by the network license manager" is given when a 8th or 9th users attempts to open ACAD 2012. The LMTolls shows 7 of  7 RSU used and 1 if 2 ACAD license used.  Does the Revit's ACAD 2012 cascade down to ACAD2012?

1 computer is installed with ACAD 2012 only for a light users. 8 computers are installed with RSU 2012. Some of the 8 computers have installations of RSU 2011 and or 2012.  The 8 Computers access ACAD 2012 through the Revit Suite installation. When the 8th or 9th. when the 8th or 9th computer tries to obtain a licens to use ACAD 2012 through the RSU 2012 installation we ger the error.

One occurance of an Autodesk product per computer.  I run around the office, look and yell at the users if the use more.

 

Just install regular ACAD 2012 on my machine.  Regular ACAD 2012 will obtained a license. I closed out of ACAD 2012, clicked on Revit's ACAD 2012 Icon which resulted in a denial of license.
