My job requires that we have no internet access. I currently deploy our clients using a cloning machine. I create a master image and clone to our clients with all applications installed. I would like to be able to include the activation before I clone to the clients. I watched the video for AAMES and it mentioned about a workaround for cloned clients. It also said there was a video available on the topic. Can someone point me in the right direction for this?
What version of PS are you using? While I don't know the exact answer to your question, I too work in an environment that has no internet access. Our company purchases PS through the Adobe's enterprise services, so they may have more into in this area. Our IT keeps track of the computers that PS is installed on for licensing, however, they buy a large number of seats, so I believe they get a single S/N for installation. We haven't gone to CC yet, but they also have a packager for that for large enterprises. I'm still trying to see how this will all work with CC.
