You borrowed a license and you now want to return it to the server. You were unable to return the license from the client machine. Possible reasons can include:
Errors when trying to return a borrowed license early
Deletion or corruption of the user's profile who borrowed the license
Hard drive failure which renders the operating system inaccessable
There is no way to force the return of a borrowed license from the FlexLM license manager. Once the borrow period expires the license will be automatically returned to the license server pool.
It is strongly recommended that network administrators limit network license borrowing to those users who specifically need to take licenses on the road. It is strongly recommended that administrators set the maximum borrow period to an amount of time that corresponds with how long these users will be away from the license manager. These settings are controlled using an options file. For more information about configuring an options file see the following solution: Controlling network license access using an options file.
Do not use the Borrowing tab in LMTOOLS with Autodesk product licenses. Doing so can cause additional borrowed licenses to become orphaned from the license manager.
