You can configure the PC image to check out licenses from a volume license server if your company has a Volume License Agreement (VLA) with NI. For more information on using a volume license server, see NI Volume License Program. When configuring your image computer, enable Volume License Server Access. After deploying the image, the client computers will check out licenses from the volume license server.
You can activate local licenses on the PC image so that the license files will remain activated upon deployment of the image. This solution requires generation of a computer ID based on a disk volume serial number rather than a MAC Address.
Follow steps in How to Change Which Part of my Computer’s Hardware is Used for NI Software Activation to obtain your disk volume serial number. Then, reach out to NI to request a new computer ID that can be used for activation.
You must ensure that the disk volume serial number set during the imaging process always remains the same; otherwise, licenses will no longer remain activated.
