If we didn't do this, we would need to manually activate Maya on Linux using the method below:
1. Run Maya and close the wizard because it can't auto-activate. 2. Go to /tmp folder and look for the MAYA_2015_0_F_USLongCode.xml and email it to Product Support. i.e. Create a case. 3. We generate an activation code based on the xml file. 4. Launch Maya and there is a Browse button to load the activation xml file.
Please check out this issue for cascading for Autodesk Utility Design 2015. This is only an issue if you have the Autodesk Utility Design and a Suite that has Autodesk Utility Design on the same server.
