The floating MAC locked license model is recommended for licenses that will be used in the cloud, on HPC clusters and for customers that use the Flexera license manager to manage other software products. It is also the backup model for customers that experience problems with the Trusted Storage option. The license is locked to the computer running the license manager using the computer's MAC address. The license information is stored in a license (certificate) file. The license manager runs on a supported platform, and licenses can be accessed from other computers in the local network.
