Do ARM's development tools support BORROW licenses?

Applies to: ARM Developer Suite (ADS), RealView Development Suite (RVDS), Tool Licensing (License Management)


For a number of reasons, ARM does not support the use of the FLEXlm/FLEXnet BORROW attribute in its development tool license files.

If you need to use your development tools away from the network that your license server is on, then you will require a node locked license.

If you have a number of different machines that will need to have access to the development tools whilst away from your license server network, then you should obtain one or more node locked licenses that are locked to network cards that can easily be transferred between machines as required, such as a USB or PCMCIA network card.
