In an old User Guide for FLexLM there is reference to a form of server redundency using a License-FIle List. This allows remotely located servers to simultaneously provide licensing services to user cummunities in both locations. It is offered as an alternative to three-server redundency.

The new Acresso License Admin Guide does not mention this option. Is it still available?

Yes, license administrators can still define a list of license sources in VENDOR_LICENSE_FILE and LM_LICENSE_FILE or by using lmpath. Say, @chicago;@santaclara;@maidenhead (on Windows, or @chicago:@santaclara on Unix).

The developer guide ProgRef-LF.pdf describes it in the section "Using a License Search Path to Define Redundant License Servers", and I'll see if we can restore the information in the administration guide.
