Borrowing

Using a floating license in the offline mode.

If a license is used on a machine that is intermittently connected to the license server, the license can be borrowed from the server and used as an offline floating license. A license can be borrowed from a license server for the selected period of time (default 24 hours).

The maximum license borrowing period is 2 months. If you would like to limit the maximum borrowing period, please contact your sales representative.
