Buenas tardes.

Tengo entendido que puedo hacer mi migración de licencias de dispositivo compartido hasta diciembre 31, pero si yo compre mis licencias en marzo, no debería de poder migrar mis licencias hasta el año próximo ya que no podemos hacer actualización de los equipos que es uno de los requisitos obligatorios para este licenciamiento???

Good afternoon.

I understand that I can do my shared device license migration until December 31, but if I buy my licenses in March, I should not be able to migrate my licenses until next year since we can not update the equipment that is one of the Mandatory requirements for this licensing???

I'm assuming app-v implies a virtual machine environment. If so, then no, shared device license packages cannot be installed on virtual machines.

Clearly Adobe don't understand how educational environments work.  The move away from volume licensing and to SDL is a step backwards and will negatively impact on our staff and students.

  • Why do we need a message flashing up every hour when our users have their own user accounts?
  • Students want to log onto a computer and open and app and start working.  Logging into a PC, and then immediately having to log into an app is a terrible experience.
  • If SDL isn't designed for single user devices (i.e. staff laptops) we now need to package and deploy 15 SDL apps on Windows, 15 SDL apps on Mac, 15 NUL apps on Windows and 15 NUL on Mac.  We support 300 apps across 6500 devices for 30000 users.  Adobe have now doubled our work load.

We'll make sure to communicate to our users that the poor experience is forced on us by Adobe.

this.. hit the nail on the head. 

 

I need to explain to 3500 people that they not just can use the app but that the need to login by their Gsuite account. This makes not a lot of sense because they are on a windows machine (we dont have Azure Active Directory to connect to).

Is this the most current FAQ document?  Our Adobe licensing vendor said that this FAQ has a lot of misinformation in it, for example, having to separate student and staff licenses into shared device and named user and not being able to allow students to work from home on their school-related projects and homework for their design classes.  If it is true that we do have to separate staff and students, you are creating a ton more work for educational institutions, not to mention the significant increase in costs, as many institutions would not have the minimum number of staff to qualify for the named user discount pricing under your new scheme.

Adobe really should have discussed these possible changes with educational institutions BEFORE deciding to go this route.  There are many issues that were not properly thought through under an educational lens.

We have just moved to Shared Device Licensing CC, but the instructors in the graphic design computer lab are really annoyed that the app versions in Shared Device Licensing are not as new as the ones they have with their User licenses. 

Is there a release schedule of app updates for Shared Device Licensing, and could you share this information?

The app versions supported by Shared Device Licenses and Named User licenses are almost entirely the same. You might need to deploy the updates and/or updated packages that you can create using the Admin Console.
