No. A new service for the Ideate Software will be created and run side-by-side with any existing FlexLM daemon. Any existing services, such as Autodesk Revit (adskflex.exe), will not be interrupted by this process. See more here.
Opening multiple year versions of Ideate Software will consume multiple seats of FlexLM network license (i.e. Ideate BIMLink 2018 & 2019 = 2 network seats consumed). This mirrors the behavior of FlexLM network licensed Revit and Autodesk Suites.
Ideate Software FlexLM network licenses may not be distributed across multiple servers, except for customers with Enterprise Licensing. Redundant license setup is not supported. We recommend to configure Ideate licenses on the ‘Master’ server. If you have further questions about multiple servers, contact [email protected].
Ideate Software is supported on the combined IPv4/6 version of LMTools. This will run on both IPv4 and 6 networks. Learn more about Configuring the Ideate License Service.
Ideate Software is utilizing Flexera’s FlexLM to manage network licensing. This is the same technology currently used by Autodesk Revit network licensing.
The FlexLM network licensing for Ideate Software has been designed and tested in many virtualized environments. Due to the variety of technologies available for virtualized environments we recommend contacting [email protected] for assistance with validating your unique setup.
You can borrow a license from the pool for up to 6 months. Please note that you must borrow one for each product and corresponding year version you are expecting to use. See more here.
The system requirements for the server installation of Ideate Software mirror the FlexLM requirements with the exception that for Ideate Software we support 64 bit Windows operating systems only. The license manager itself is a lightweight application that consumes very little system resources. If you do not have a server that meets these requirements, contact [email protected] for more information.
Yes, you can use FlexLM network licensed Ideate Software with Autodesk standalone licenses. Installation of the FlexLM program from either the Autodesk website or from your Revit installation media will be required prior to proceeding with the Ideate setup.
Ideate Software network licensing is supported for all Subscription products and versions of Ideate Software.
Only Windows 64 bit OS are currently supported. It can be either a Windows Server or a ‘regular’ Windows 10 machine.
