How to have multiple users on a single license

MACUSER_2008 is on a distinguished road

MACUSER_2008 is offline

I am using a software which is tied to Host ID of the system. I setup three users on the same machine & gave permission (read & write) to each user to use the application using "get info" as an administrator.

Once I did this, two of us logged in & tested, everything worked fine. We used it for 3 days & used to connect to remote machine as we had OSXServer 1.3 installed. One of our guys upgraded OSXServer from 1.3 to 1.7 after which only one user could login & use the application. If the second user tried to use the system, there would be a pop up "the license is already in use"!

I formatted the system twice, got it back to original shape with OSXServer 1.3 but still no luck! I am still getting the same message & am not able to have two user logging in.

Can anyone suggest a solution as how to overcome the above problem. I know of one solution - to buy new license (due to the price, I cannot buy)!

Please let me know if there is any additional cleanup needed. As of now I have created a mount point on which I have put my OS files so that at any point, if the need be, I can format & re-install OS on other partition.


QUOTE Thanks
