Support: Borrowing licenses in Industry Collections
We have had many questions this year from customers who have upgraded to the new Industry Collections using multi-seat licenses. Many of these questions have been around borrowing licenses and in what way this process works differently to the old design suites.
With Industry Collections each product registers that it has taken a license of its own. The new collections allow 2 products to be run per license however this is managed by the Network License Manager. However, the ability to run 2 products per license is not the case when licenses are borrowed. Currently, when a licenses is borrowed each product in the collection will consume a license individually.
This means that if a user needs AutoCAD, Inventor and Nastran then 3 Collection licenses are consumed rather than one that would be when using the Suites.
Autodesk have told us that they are looking into this; we will update customers when we have more information.
If you have questions or need advice with this then please contact the Symetri's support team.
Data sharing will allow companies to break new grounds and to innovate faster. However, it has it´s obstacles that have to be overcome; engineering changes that are not properly communicated or documented, designers being interrupted by colleagues who need the data, 'data consumers'.[Learn more]
