Many times a company will purchase a single network license number, but sometimes a single company will have multiple network license numbers. This could happen for several reasons. When a company has multiple network licenses, they can choose to put those network licenses on separate servers or put all of the network licenses on a single server. This article walks through the steps to add a network license number to an existing SolidNetWork License Manager. Note that this process changed in the 2023 version of SOLIDWORKS.
Starting in SOLIDWORKS 2023, new network serial numbers are added to your SolidNetWork License manager server through the SOLIDWORKS Product Activation dialog instead of by modifying the installation. To do this:

FIG. 4: Add Serial Numbers dialog
You can also remove serial numbers you don't want hosted on a particular server from this page. Simply click to highlight it in the list of serial numbers, then pick the ‘Remove’ button. A serial number must be be deactivated before it can be removed in this manner.
The installation of the SolidNetWork License Manager needs to be modified to include the additional network license.

Click ‘Install’ to complete the modification.
After the installation has been modified the network license number needs to be activated. The activation steps are the same steps for activating a single network license number.
