hi,

I have a software application on a server with 5 licenses that are managed under Flexlm. The application is available across a network to other locations. I would like to know if it is possible to restrict software access, by "quantity" using the EXCLUDE command in the flex options file. In other works, even though I have 5 licenses, I want to limit location X to being able to check out only one license (Otherwise the next person to access the software would get a license denial). I realize I can restrict via host, subnet or feature, but this is not really what I need. Can this be done?

thanks!

See the online manual here:

It looks like you might want to use the "reserve" keyword.
