Instructions provided describe how to connect to a license manager for ArcGIS Desktop 10x via the ArcGIS Administrator.
The ArcGIS Administrator allows a concurrent use work environment to be defined. This document only provides information regarding ArcGIS Desktop 10x Concurrent Use Licenses.
The Concurrent Use (or Floating) License Manager allows a group of users to share available license seats on a network. The licenses are managed by a server which limits the number of concurrent users to the number of license seats defined in the license file. This system consists of a license manager application that can be installed on a local workstation,or installed on a server that is accessible to workstations on the network. In order to connect to a license manager, it must be defined within ArcGIS Administrator.
