imaging/installation and licensing questions

imaging/installation and licensing questions

imaging/installation and licensing questions

We use AutoCad Architecture 2008 on two machines in our office.  We are in possession of three licenses.  The other PC's use in-house software for design work.  I am working to streamline PC maintenance and deployment, as well as writing our various IT Policy Documents.  I'll outline our basic plans.

No work-related files are stored on local machines, it is all stored on a remote file server.

All machines are restored to a set default configuration at a set interval (undetermined).  It is then up to the users to install their own toys pending approval.

Are there any issues with regards to licensing when I create the image, or restore the image with a licensed version of AutoCAD pre-installed?

RE: imaging/installation and licensing questions

When I last did this I had few problems (took a few goes). From memory I think you just need to know where the licence server is installed and point to this location when prompted at the network install options.  My package still needed a little user input as I was also installing third party software.

I hope this helps,
