License Server Busy: How to Roll Over to Another

The environment variable can be configured to do the rollover to the next server if it cannot find the license local or if the local machine is down. The UGS_LICENSE_SERVER variable can have the servers added to the value and separated with a semicolon. UGS_LICENSE_SERVER=28000@SERVER1;28000@SERVER2 SPLM_LICENSE_SERVER=28000@SERVER1;28000@SERVER2

On UNIX, the license search path entries are separated by colons; on Windows, the entries are separated by semicolons.

NX 10 Issues with Excel 2016 (to be fixed May 2016)

Information regarding using NX 10 with Microsoft Excel 2016: Microsoft Excel 2016 support for NX became available in NX10.0.3 MP2 and later. But, Siemens PLM found a critical error in the Microsoft translator. The error will be fixed by Microsoft in their latest Excel build 16.0.6769.*, which is supposed to be released by May 2016. Therefore, Siemens PLM recommends that customers refrain from using Microsoft Excel 2016 before the release of this specific Excel build, as it affects basic workflow using NX with Excel.
