All you have to do is search for it here:
1. Get 2015 your license and configure it using your lmtools.exe [11.11].
2. Configure it and confirm that it works via Perform Status enquiry.
3. Confirm that AutoCAD 2014 can run and connect to the license server.
4. Launch AutoCAD 2015 and this error will come up [0.0.0]. This error typically means that the server is configured correctly with an Autodesk product but there is no license on the server but we have confirmed that we do indeed have a 2015 license as noted in step 2.
Moldflow 2015 will give you a generic licensing error noted below:
You need to update your Network License Manager to the latest version [11.12].

We don't get too many issues on the installer on the Mac failing. In this episode, the error is:
Errors: Could not Authorize User. System Error Installation cannot continue.
In this case, the solution is to create a root user account and install Maya using that account instead of your default main account with Administrator privileges. The root user account will be labelled "Other" when you logout of the main account.

Old School Tips & Tricks:
Command lines install of Maya on Mac
AutoCAD on Mac crash & headless systems
Here is a scenario for MacBook Pro users [Nvidia Geforce GT 750M] running Mavericks [10.9] with a Boot Camp partition running Windows 8.0. In this episode of troubleshooting tenacity, the user had the Maya Creation Suite 2014 installed. Maya 2014 worked but MotionBuilder 2014 and Mudbox 2014 did not work.
The error for Mudbox was: Unsupported Graphics Hardware.
Error: Mudbox requires ATI or Nvidia graphics
Technically, Mudbox prefers Nvidia Quadro & AMD FirePro video cards and it is noted here:
To solve this problem, we used Start > run > msinfo32 > Components > Display to see the graphics driver that it was using and it was the Microsoft Video Driver. This is a default Boot Camp installation setting for WIndows 8.0.
In this case, to resolve this issue we downloaded and installed the appropriate Nvidia Graphics Driver [Nvidia Geforce GT 750M] on the system. Autodesk software started up without any errors and as a bonus, the Thunderbolt Display Port will also work in the Windows Boot Camp partition as well.
Thanks to Anthony Vecchione for confirming that this solution worked.
So way back, when AutoCAD for Mac was first introduced, the product keys for the mac were different from Windows version of AutoCAD.
The great news is that starting in 2014, they are all the same!
AutoCAD for Mac 2011: 777C1
AutoCAD for Mac 2012: 777D1
AutoCAD for Mac 2013: 777E1
AutoCAD for Mac 2014: 001F1 or 777F1 *depends on what you have purchased!
AutoCAD 2011 [Windows]: 001C1
AutoCAD 2012 [Windows]: 001D1
AutoCAD 2013 [Windows]: 001E1
AutoCAD 2014 [Windows]: 001F1
AutoCAD 2013 LT for Mac: 827E1
AutoCAD 2014 LT for Mac: 057F1 or 827F1 *depends on what you have purchased!
AutoCAD 2013 LT [Windows]: 057E1
AutoCAD 2014 LT [Windows]: 057F1
This is now a bit aligned with all the Mac Compatible Products regardless of the operating system that it is installed on.

Epilogue [VERY IMPORTANT!]
If you have purchased AutoCAD 2014 on Windows, you can use the same product key for installing on Windows and Mac versions of the product. [Product Key: 001F1]
If you have purchased AutoCAD 2014 on Mac, you must use the product key for the mac version only [Product Key 777E1].
The backend database will be checking the version that you have bought and they must sync before an activation will take place.
For Educational sites that are using Standalone versions of the Autodesk Education Master 2014 or the Autodesk Design Academy 2014, if you install AutoCAD 2014 for Mac and you use the default Suite product keys [651F1 or 200F1], you will get this error when you launching it:
License status [1.1.0]
When you try to activate the software, you will get the following error message:
To help determine the nature of the problem, the error code is: 110.
To resolve this issue, you must use the standard product key [001F1 or 777F1] for AutoCAD 2014 for mac to install the software and then manually activate it.
At this time, we have alerted the Development Team of the issue.
This should be resolved with AutoCAD 2014 for Mac SP1.
We recently got an issue with Maya 2014 on Mac + 10.9 [Mavericks]. You will get an Error 110 when activating it. In fact, you will not even be able to manually activate the sofware. The solution is noted below
1. Delete Maya 2014:
2. Download and install Maya 2014 SP3.
What made this issue interesting was that we tried using Maya 2014 & Maya 2014 SP2 for Mac and it had the same error. This only was resolved by installing Maya 2014 SP3!
We just received confirmation from the Development Team that Maya 2014 SP3 has some updates to the licensing libraries that fixes the Error 110.
Thanks to Andrew M. for confirming that this solved the problem.
I love updates that are free but please update with caution! Any full point release [10.9] is pretty much a whole new operating system on the Mac.
If you are currently using Autodesk products on the Mac, please don't upgrade yet. There are some known issues noted below:
Maya LT 2014
Mudbox 2014 for Mac
AutoCAD 2013 for Mac
Autodesk Smoke 2013
Smoke 2013 is currently unsupported on 10.9.
As of October 23, 2013, AutoCAD & AutoCAD LT 2014 for Mac has just been released and it supports Mac OS X Maverick [10.9].
Please check out the Comments section for a note in this post for users of Maya 2014 & Mudbox 2014.
If you are setting up a license server on the Mac, you may encounter the following error:
No valid hostids, exiting
EXITING DUE TO SIGNAL 34 Exit reason 2
adskflex exited with status 34 (Invalid host).
What made this cas interesting is that the system was a Mac Mini running Mac OS 10.8.x with a Server "Add-in" so in the About Dialog box, it will just state that the computer is running Mac OS 10.8 but in reality it is a Mac OS X Server.
To solve this problem, you will need to generate your license based off your Wi-Fi (formerly AirPort) card even if you are not using it.
Wi-Fi > Advanced > Hardware > Ethernet Address
Thanks to Fred Levy for confirming this workaround solved the problem.
