If I borrow one license from my ArcGIS concurrent license server will the server count get reduced? Altogether the institute is having 5 licenses; if I borrow 1 will the available ArcGIS license count be reduced to 4?

  • Is your question about ArcGIS Server (as written) or about ArcGIS Desktop license server (your apparent meaning)? – Vince Dec 4 '17 at 12:49
  • Yes arcgis desktop license server. If I borrow will the server count will get decreased that was my question – Gokul Anand Dec 5 '17 at 5:47

    That's the definition of borrowing -- checking out a seat indefinitely. It would be worthless license management technology if you could check out a seat and still let others use it later. – Vince Dec 5 '17 at 11:12

Yes, borrowing a license means it will be unavailable for use by anybody else until you check it back in. You don't suddenly gain an extra license.

See Borrowing and returning concurrent use licenses

Also note:

The timeout for borrowed licenses is defined by your license administrator. Contact your organization's license administrator to change this value. The default timeout is 30 days. If licenses are not returned within that time, they will automatically be disabled on your machine and reenabled on the license manager.

  • I don't think this answers the question. It seems the question wants to know if borrowing a Desktop license reduces the Server count. Server seats are not permitted to be concurrent, so the question doesn't make any sense. – Vince Dec 4 '17 at 11:46

    @Vince the title says from a concurrent ArcGIS license server, I don't believe this question is anything to do with ArcGIS Server itself. – Midavalo Dec 4 '17 at 15:11
