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.

Support: Borrowing licenses in Industry Collections

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.
