Change the license type

To avoid UCD outages (what means no deployments anywhere) during license key server downtime even when LKS has HA redundant server configuration (while license servers may be kept by different team and had downtime issues), the UCD licenses should be kept on UCD Server for a grace time in case of failure to get licenses during real time (similar as UCB that keep its committer floating licenses for a month). For instance, when using UCD server/agent license, the LKS has to be up all the time, because UCD does not start when LKS is down. And even if using UCD simultaneous session license, when LKS is down, UCD is not able to deploy anywhere. There is no room to support UCD outages nowadays anymore!

    Thank You for providing your request for enhancement. As there is a technical solution using RLKS HA setup or putting the RLKS on the UCD server, there is no need to add additional license functionality to UCD.

    It is always possible to put the RLKS on the same server as UCD for maximum connection availability.
