Instant Clones and SW licensing

Hello,

we're currently running InstantClones for some pilot users. 

Everything so far is fine, except for a licensing issue that came up. It seems that when a user with an Adobe Acrobat Std/Pro license logs out off the VM and the VM is deleted (as per setting) the Adobe Acrobat license stays attached. When that user now logs in again, and gets assigned a new instant clone, Adobe Acrobat prompts the user to sign out of other machines to free up the license.

Not sure if there is a way to have the Adobe license/account 'sign out' of an instant clone and release the Adobe license, so next time the user logs in, the license is available. But then this might cause the issue that users may have to sign in to Adobe every time they connect to a new VM. 
 
Any advice appreciated.
 
Thanks!

Hi @enso_ ,

Have you already migrated to Shared Devices Licenses?
