SAP B1 , licenses and User Login woes !
I justet tested a scenario in SAP B1 2007a, where two licences are running on a particular machine. The licenses are assigned to Manager and Fred.
I notice, that I can actually open 4 different instances of SAP B1 and have Manager and Fred login 2 times each (max) for each license granted to them.
When I open a fifth login, named Brad, the user is able to login, but the license validation fails (which is genuine). However, the license manager simply shuts down at this point of time, which might be the way License Manager is designed to work.
My question here is,
1. Why does the license allow the user to login in two times at the first place ?
2. If this is allowed for some reason, is there a way for us to restrict this ? As in once the user has logged in, the same user name cannot be used again to login (lest available licenses are found)
Please let me know about how you all think about this.
