Regarding License Activation from multiple location

We have 2 Platform & Desktop License and One TestExecute License.
 
We have the below questions related to TestComplete License Manager.
 
1. A Server PC with License Manager is not showing all installed Smartbear's products on other PCs. (Although all being in the same network)
2. If one PC has TestExecute installed, then how TestExecute will communicate with the License Manager and get the Activation status?
3. As we have two floating licenses, Can we install License manager in two different PCs and use different License Keys in respective systems?

1) The License Manager doesn't show the licenses on all the machines in your network, it shows the licenses that are installed on that license manger server.  It is used, primarily, to serve up the licenses for the other machines to consume.  It sounds like you have a mix of node-locked licenses and some floating licenses.

2) Basically, the machine communicates on the network to the license manager and determines if there is an available license to execute.  If so, it claims it and runs the tol

3) You shouldn't need to do that.  You could activate both licenses on the same license manager and then those keys would be available throughout.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.
I love good food, good books, good friends, and good fun.
