Overdraft Permissions Disappear When Installing New License File in NI VLM

Issue Details

I have overdraft enabled in NI Volume License Manager (VLM) and many overdraft permissions assigned to people.  When I go to install a new license file, many of my overdraft permissions get erased or disappear and I have to either reassign them or restore permissions from my backup. How do I make sure none of my permissions get erased when I install a new license file?

Solution

Before going to install the new license file, make sure all permissions requests have been accepted and loaded into the system.  You can do this in NI VLM on the Permissions Requests tab by selecting all of the permissions and selecting Accept.
