    Question
    How can I allow only certain users, groups of users or computers to be able to borrow network licenses?

     

    Answer
    - To create an options file, open a plain text editor like notepad and type the options that you wish to implement as below:

     

    # by default, computer names and user names are case sensitive unless this statement is on

    GROUPCASEINSENSITIVE ON

     

    # the following will create a group for two users

    GROUP EngineeringGroup user1 user2

     

    # the following will create a group for two computers

    HOST_GROUP EengineeringDept computer1 computer2

     

    # the following will allow license borrowing for a variety of types:

    INCLUDE_BORROW 85660PDSPRM_F GROUP EngineeringGroup

    INCLUDE_BORROW 85660PDSPRM_F HOST_GROUP EngineeringDept

    INCLUDE_BORROW 85660PDSPRM_F USER user1

    INCLUDE_BORROW 85660PDSPRM_F HOST computer1

     

    - An example options file for allowing license borrowing for a group would be:

     

    GROUPCASEINSENSITIVE ON

    GROUP EngineeringGroup user1 user2

    INCLUDE_BORROW 85660PDSPRM_F GROUP EngineeringGroup

     

    - Make sure you then save the file as adskflex.opt in the same location as your Autodesk license file. Make sure file extensions are enabled to determine if a .txt has been appended. If so, simply rename the file so that it has a .opt extension

     

    - Open LMTOOLS and go to the Start/Stop/Reread tab and choose ReRead License File. This will enable the options file that you just saved
