network installation, use one of the following license server
Single license server model. The
Network License Manager is installed on a single server, so license
management and activity is restricted to this server. A single
license file represents the total number of licenses available on
Distributed license server model.
Licenses are distributed across more than one server. A unique
license file is required for each server. To create a distributed
license server, you must run the Network License Manager on each
server that is part of the distributed server pool.
Redundant license server model. You use
three servers to authenticate a single license file. One server
acts as the master, while the other two provide backup if the
master server fails. With this configuration, licenses continue to
be monitored and issued as long as at least two servers are still
functional. The license file on all three servers is the same. You
must install the Network License Manager on each server.
Each of these
license server models is described in detail in the Network Licensing Guide. It is strongly recommended
that you read that guide before you deploy the program. You can
find the Network Licensing Guide by clicking
the Documentation link at the lower left corner of the AutoCAD 2008
Installation wizard and in the Help system.
