Autodesk Licensing Error Codes

You can actually check out the following Autodesk Licensing Error Codes in it's most raw form located here:

C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ADLM\R9\AdlmErrorCodes.xml
 Download:  AdlmErrorCodes
 
The R9 folder is for a 2015 product.  i.e. R7 = 2014
 
Using this file, you can determine Linux errors and it typically is a productinformation.pit file issue.  This means you need to use the rpm & adlmreg command to install the [Maya] software.

Thanks to Nelson Cruz for this tidbit of info.


Maya 2015 + MAYA_APP_DIR = CRASH

If you set the MAYA_APP_DIR before launching Maya 2015 to allow it to create the default folders in C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\maya, it will crash.  The only thing you will get is the Output window.

"I had to remove the variable and let maya set up in documents like it normally does the take those files and copy them into the location that I wanted then re-instate the variable."

Thanks to Hugh McCullom for confirming and sharing this tip with the community.

Here is another old Maya Environment Variable issue:

Autodesk 2015 products + Trend Micro = The system cannot open the device or file specified.

If you are getting this error and you are using Trend Micro anti-virus, you need to disable it during the installation process.

Trend Micro -2015

The system cannot open the device or file specified.  
C:\Users\NAME\AppData\Local\Temp\..... * .msi

Thanks to John Blazier for confirming that the issue still exists.  It is a best practice to disable your anti-virus when installing software.

NOTE:  The site was using Trend Micro OfficeScan 10.6.3205 Service Pack 2.

Tip: Getting server information via the Command Prompt [cmd]

Cmd

The command that everyone knows....

ping server-name

If you get an IPv6 address, then type:

ping -4 server-name

To get the ethernet address remotely, try this:

nbtstat -A ip-address-of-server-name

Result

All you need is your serial number and you can generate and configure your license server!

If you are on on the server, you can also run this command:

getmac

Running this command made me hungry....
