My company is a small user of Adobe Acrobat Standard - we average about 30 purchases a year. Currently we purchase single retail licenses but they are getting to be a bit of a pain to track and recover broken licenses after system failures.
We are thinking of moving over to Volume Licensing and using Adobe-Hosted ALM. I have a few questions:
1 - Will we still get a serial number for each copy of Acrobat Standard purchased after moving to volume licensing, or will we get one serial number to cover the lot to allow remote deployment?
2 - How easy is it to remotely deploy the application with instructions to point to the Adobe in house ALM to activate itself. Is it just a file to be configured?
3 - Can we move our serial numbers from Acrobat Standard 8 purchased as a retail version into the ALM so they become part of our pool?
4 Who can we contact to get some more information about this?
1. With Adobe's volume licensing program, you will not receive a different serial number for each license. Typically, you will receive one serial number to use for all copies of a particular product.
2. To configure ALM to use an In House license server, you would deploy a special license setup file, which you would download from the Licensing Web Site (LWS).
3. No, we do not currently have a way to add your existing retail serial numbers to the same pool as the volume licenses.
