general information on licensing

we are looking at buying some moer licenses for Fortran Composer 2015... we currently already own 2 named user licenses, and were thinking about buying 2 more named user and a 2 user floating license (we have 4 people full time that can use named, but then we have a couple people coming and going).  Is that possible to do, to mix named user and floating license?  What is the best resource to explain how all that works?  Currently, we just run the fortran on personal laptops, not on a server.  So our plan is to move to a server, and have up to 6 people using at once, 4 named and 2 floating.  Is that doable?

Hello,

Here is an article that may help: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/how-many-licenses-do-i-need

You can combine floating and named user licenses on the same machine.  When the compiler runs, it checks all the license files it finds regardless of the license type and checks out the first available.  Each checkout would access the license server manager used by the floating license, so you'll need to make sure it is running and quickly accessible to avoid slow checkout times.

Regards,

Jennifer
