AutoCAD Architecture 2012: Error 1328 when installing SP1

Licensing: options file when there are multiple FEATURE lines for a single feature in the license file

If you have the a license with multiple feature line for a same feature code, applicable when you have some package license and some temporary license in the package

Eg:-

#AutoCAD Mechanical Package License.

PACKAGE 64400AMECH_PP_F adskflex 1.000 \

    COMPONENTS="85733AMECH_PP_2012_0F 85545AMECH_PP_2011_0F \

    71800AMECH_PP_2010_0F 59200AMECH_PP_2009_0F" OPTIONS=SUITE \

………………………………

INCREMENT 64400AMECH_PP_F adskflex 1.000 permanent 17 \

    VENDOR_STRING=commercial:permanent SUPERSEDE DUP_GROUP=UH \

………………………………

#AutoCAD Mechanical 2012 Temporary License.

INCREMENT 85733AMECH_PP_2012_0F adskflex 1.000 24-feb-2012 6 \

    VENDOR_STRING=nfr:extendable SUPERSEDE DUP_GROUP=UH \

………………………………

Problem:-

If you create an options file with RESERVE command

RESERVE 5 85733AMECH_PP_2012_0F HOST_GROUP Myeng_group

It will actually reserve 10 Licenses for the same group, because feature code 85733AMECH_PP_2012_0F is repeated in the license file.

Solution:-

In order to specify the exact seats to reserve one has to distinguish a particular group of license by using the option Keywords

The following option keywords are used as feature name modifiers to denote a specific group of licenses:

• VERSION=

• HOSTID=

• EXPDATE=

• KEY=

• SIGN=

• ISSUER=

• NOTICE=

• VENDOR_STRING= (if configured by the publisher as a pooling component)

• dist_info=

• user_info=

• asset_info=

(http://www.globes.com/support/utilities/fnp_LicAdmin_11_10.pdf page 116)

In the above example we could use either one of the following line depending on if the permanent or temporary license which needs to be reserved.

RESERVE 5 85733AMECH_PP_2012_0F:VENDOR_STRING=nfr:extendable HOST_GROUP Myeng_group

OR

RESERVE 5 85733AMECH_PP_2012_0F:VENDOR_STRING= commercial:permanent HOST_GROUP Myeng_group
