Your borrowed network license is automatically returned to the network license server on the day that the license expires. You can return a license earlier than the expiry date, but to do this, your computer must be connected to the network license server.
Once a borrowed license is returned, you can borrow a license again as long as your computer is connected to the network license server and a license is available on the server.
Note If your product supports access to license borrowing commands in the status tray, you can use this method to return a borrowed license early, but the display settings for the status tray must be turned on. To turn on the display settings, right-click an empty area on the status bar. Click Tray Settings.
Your license is returned to the network license server.
To check the license expiration date
Access to this command varies by product, and includes one or both of the following options:
- In the status tray, right-click the License Borrowing icon.
- Click Help menu About Product Information or Product License Information. In the Product License Information dialog box, see the License Expiration Date.
