To Borrow a Network License from Command Line

  1. Launch a Terminal window.
  2. Execute the following command:
    lmutil lmborrow adskflex enddate [time]

    enddate is the date you will return the license, formatted as follows: dd-mmm-yyyy.
    time argument is optional, but is specified in 24-hour format (hh:mm).

    For example:
    lmutil lmborrow adskflex 14-oct-2012 [14:00]
    borrows a license until October 14, 2012 at 2:00 PM.

  3. Start AutoCAD for Mac.
  4. This borrows a license from the server.
