Does solidworks license manager work with SBS 2011? I am preparing to upgrade to SBS 2011 and would like to know if any other solidworks users are running SBS 2011.
Yes no problem, works just fine with SBS 2011 incase anyone is wondering. Assuming you have floating licenses the steps you have to take are:
1) Make sure you return the license(s) to solidworks' over the internet from your old server. (I had an error message but it worked anyway).
2) Install the license manager on the new server.
3) Input your license key info/server info and request your license keys again from the solidworks server(s).

After browsing that link and seaching agian in the correct forum they said SBS 2011 is pretty much windows server 2008 R2. I will try it out and see if it works and report back.
Anyone using SBS 2011 with newer SW SNL software? Reporting no success with 12 or 13- 'could not get info from the server' even though ping/ telnet is possible.
