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 network license (i.e. Ideate BIMLink 2018 & 2019 = 2 network seats consumed). This mirrors the behavior of network licensed Revit and Autodesk Suites.
Ideate Software supports a distributed license model, but does not support a redundant license model. If you are currently using a redundant server model for an existing license service, contact email@example.com to discuss your options.
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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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@example.com for more information.
Yes, you can use networked 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.
