Multi-user monthly licenses

Is it just me or did the multi-user/floating monthly subscription option disappear with the "new way to buy" update. How the hell are we supposed to rent licenses for our render farm now?


I tired looking at re-sellers in Denmark recommended by Autodesk and there are two, one of them doesn't even have Arnold and the others website doesn't work. What are we supposed to do?


Before this "update" we could just jump in to the Arnold website and rent a few licenses and have them up and running through our rlm license server with in an hour while now with the new way we can't rent it through Arnolds website, or Autodeks e-store as they only do single-user license which are worthless for a render farm.


Please don't tell me I'm now forced to find a "local" re-seller for our multi-user rentals as it's both really slow and kind of shitty compared to the old approach that just worked.

There are no monthly multi-user licenses. All monthly licenses are single-user licenses.

Single-user licenses require a UI to Sign In (the UI is provided by the Arnold License Manager).

For a render farm of headless Linux nodes, you wont' be able to use single-user licenses.
