Defaulting to a PDM Professional Viewer license

We currently have 14 PDM Professional CAD Editor & Web licenses. We recently added a 5-pack of Viewer licenses. We have 3+ users that will only ever need to pull these Viewer licenses. I have went on each machine and ran the admin tool went to help>about and changed the Client type: SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional Viewer from the Editor license. We restarted as instructed and were able to pull the viewer license. These machines have now defaulted back to a Editor license (maybe after an unrelated restart?), causing us to max out our 14 editor while we have 5 free viewer licenses available. How do you default these users to the viewer without adding Exclude syntax to the SNL Options File?
