2008 admin image: standalone and SNL licenses in same options file?

Discussion created by Mark Landin on May 9, 2008
One of the Solidworks locations I manage in another state has both standalone users (the engineers) and SNL users (various others). In 2007 it was fairly easy to set up the .ini file to give the standalone people the specific serial number they needed and give everyone else the SNL serial number.

It's not obvious to me how to do this with 2008, however. At first it seemed like doing something with the Users or Groups functionality might do it, but the problem is that I don't want to have to set up all the SNL users explicitly, since there are quite a few and that list changes regularly. Is there a way to specify a "default" serial number that should be used if that user doesn't have a specific standalone serial number defined for them? Sorry if that seems like a dense question .. it wasn't obvious to me in the Installation Guide how this would be done.
