FAQ: Can ArcGIS for Desktop 10.1 to 10.3 clients borrow licenses and work in Remote Desktop environments?

Question

Can ArcGIS for Desktop 10.1 to 10.3 clients borrow licenses and work in Remote Desktop environments?

Answer

ArcGIS for Desktop 10.1 to 10.3 clients are able to borrow licenses and operate in a Remote Desktop (Terminal Services) environment using an ArcGIS version 10.1 License Manager.

Note:
The License Manager version used must be of an equal or higher version than the ArcGIS Desktop client version being run.

Some legacy products are affected by this change:

Solaris ARC/INFO Workstation (all versions): 10.0 licenses are required to operate. For each seat of Solaris ARC/INFO Workstation to be maintained, a 10.0 Concurrent Use license must remain on the ArcGIS 10.1-10.3 License Manager. Alternatively, a separate License Manager with 10.0 licenses can be set up for operating Solaris ARC/INFO Workstation.

Windows ARC/INFO Workstation (versions 9.2 and older only): For each seat of Windows ARC/INFO Workstation to be maintained, a 10.0 Concurrent Use license must remain on the ArcGIS 10.1-10.3 License Manager. Alternatively, a separate License Manager with 10.0 licenses can be set up for operating Windows ARC/INFO Workstation.

Note:
ArcGIS for Desktop 9.2 SP6 and later is not affected by this change.
