At IU, how do I configure ArcGIS for Desktop to use the UITS-managed Esri License Service?

UITS manages Esri license servers for ArcGIS for Desktop licensing support. Use the ArcGIS Desktop Administrator application to configure your Desktop installation to use the UITS license servers:

  1. From the Start menu, select Programs, and then ArcGIS. Right-click Desktop Administrator and select Run as Administrator.
  2. In the "ArcGIS Desktop Administrator" window, select the Desktop folder.
  3. Click Change and enter esri1.uits.indiana.edu;esri2.uits.indiana.edu. Click Apply.
  4. To confirm that ArcGIS can see the license service, select the Availability tab. You should see many license features listed. Available licenses will vary depending on how many computers have checked out ArcGIS for Desktop license features.
  5. To close the Desktop Administrator, click OK.
