    Your welcomed, if you are doing this a lot you may want to look at using a option file om the License Manager. You can set it to check in the license automatic after a set time/date. But also be aware borrowing license has cause some issue for some users before.

    First what is "Option file om the license manager"? how many users can borrow the network license at the same time on the same license?

    The option file is nothing more than a text file you or the server's admin creates. It allows a lot of options on the licenses and use of them. Who logged on and from what workstation etc. It can be set up to return a borrowed license or a user that logged on after a set time. For instance user 1 logs on and then locks his workstation to get a cup of coffee, on the way to the coffee pot or Starbucks the user 1 gets hit by a bus. With out the automatic check in of the license with the options file that instances or license is in used until user 1 comes back to work or your IT hacks his profiles and closes AutoCAD.
    You can only have as many users borrow a license as you have licenses (seats) for.
