How to use the ARCGIS.opt file to restrict borrowing

I had a great question on support the other day asking me to explain how to use the ARCGIS.opt file to restrict borrowing of certain licenses.

The License Manager 10 help on the Options File states that you can use the options file to allow or deny license borrowing. But that’s about it.

If you are familiar with version 9 options files there was a BORROW line – this has changed in version 10. Gone is the old familiar borrow tag and replacing it is the less obvious, but equally effective, INCLUDE_ENTITLEMENT & EXCLUDE_ENTITLEMENT. This options line controls license borrowing.

All you need to do is list those who can borrow (INCLUDE_ENTITLEMENT) then only those users included have access to the borrowing feature.
