From 'ArcGIS 10 Licensing Concepts and Strategies' white paper, it says that "Deauthorization is permitted up to four times per year per license."
Is this based on Authorization Number or just single license authorized in LM?
To clarify my qustion, let's say we have ten ArcInfo concurrent licenses and they indicate the same Authorization Number (EFLXXXXXXXXX). And we plan to install multiple LM to support different user groups (i.e. 5 LM machines) and install two licenses on each of them. If these five LM workstations got refreshed we will need to de-authorize the licenses on each machine and re-authorize on the new ones (therefore deauthorizing 5 times). Then can we deauthorize the licenses 4 times on each machine? Or it is up to 4 times per Authorization Number so we can de-authorize total 4 times? Then we will not able to de-authorize on five different machines?
Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks,
