I am installing Maya 2024 and I am running into this popup.  I am able to get the license to verify via the network server when putting in my credentials.  I haven't tried on a non-admin machine.

I created a configuration profile with Managed Login Items, and added the Team Identifier/Bundle ID to it and deployed it to my machines and still getting the popup.  I've not seen this popup before.  Anyone have any info/experience on this?

Here is the script I am using, with the AutoCad and Mudbox install lines removed:

 

 

#!/bin/bash

### Install AutoDesk Combo 2023 (AutoCAD, Maya & MudBox)
### silently @ login window with network licenses (aka multi-user lab/classroom deploy)

### 2022.07.27 by JonW

### Simply update variables/products below the function section as desired
### Read the additional details at the end of the script for more clarity on licensing.

### Ensure:
### 1) installer app(s) re-packed from .dmg by Composer & deployed to /private/tmp (root:wheel 755)
### 2) the network license server is functional
### 3) optionally, that previous Autodesk installations have been removed.
### and if so, you've also unloaded com.autodesk.AdskLicensingService.plist

installFunction ()
{
    ### Before install, clear quarantine that may step on Setup.app when run at the login window.
    ### Also as of 2023, Mudbox still uses a different setup app path with --noui flag NOT --silent
    ### Finally, remove the installer app when complete
    
    /usr/bin/xattr -rc /private/tmp/"${installerApp}"
    
    if echo "$installerApp" | grep -iq "Mudbox"; then
        /private/tmp/"${installerApp}"/Contents/MacOS/setup --noui
    else
        /private/tmp/"${installerApp}"/Contents/Helper/Setup.app/Contents/MacOS/Setup --silent
    fi
    
    /bin/rm -rf /private/tmp/"${installerApp}"
}



licenseFunction ()
{
    ### based off Onkstons's terrific work (I think they we're the first?) but simplified for 2023.
    ### see also, addl details at the end of script for alternative 'legit' licensing method.
    licensePath="/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/AdskLicensingService/${productKey}_${year}.0.0.F"
    /bin/mkdir -p "${licensePath}"
    /usr/bin/touch "${licensePath}/licpath.lic"
    /bin/echo "SERVER ${networkServer} 000000000000" > "${licensePath}/licpath.lic"
    /bin/echo "USE_SERVER" >> "${licensePath}/licpath.lic"
    
    /Library/Application\ Support/Autodesk/AdskLicensing/Current/helper/AdskLicensingInstHelper change --pk "${productKey}" --pv "${year}.0.0.F" --lm NETWORK --ls "${networkServer}"
}

networkServer="your.network.license.server.here"

### AutoCAD
productKey="11111"
year="2023"
installerApp="Install Autodesk AutoCAD 2023 for Mac.app"
installFunction
licenseFunction


### Maya
productKey="11111"
year="2023"
installerApp="Install Maya 2023.app"
installFunction
licenseFunction


### Mudbox
productKey="11111"
year="2023"
installerApp="Install Mudbox 2023.app"

### Verify license details - not required, but kind of nice to see.
/Library/Application\ Support/Autodesk/AdskLicensing/Current/helper/AdskLicensingInstHelper list
echo "Autodesk network licensing complete"

### Additional network license details:
### For those who are curious, or if the above ever ceases to function:

### The 'legit' method for initial silent license registration (using autoCAD as an example) uses the 'register' command instead of 'change'.
### It also requires use of the --cf flag to denote a path to the app's config (.pit) file.

### e.g.
### configFile="/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/ADLM/.config/ProductInformation.pit"
### /Library/Application\ Support/Autodesk/AdskLicensing/Current/helper/AdskLicensingInstHelper register --pk "${productKey}" --pv "${year}.0.0.F" --cf "${configFile}" --lm NETWORK --ls "${networkServer}"

### The end result is the same as the 'change' method used above (at least after the initial app launch).
### Essentially the 'change' method works backwards to manually create the licpath.lic directory & file,
### then uses the 'change' command to register it.

### Anecdotally, the 'change' method appears to produce a slightly faster initial app launch,
### but it's hard to say which is better.
### Either way, it's good to know both & having handle on the AdskLicensingInstHelper utility helps a lot!

### Check these out >>>
### /Library/Application\ Support/Autodesk/AdskLicensing/Current/helper/AdskLicensingInstHelper register --help
### /Library/Application\ Support/Autodesk/AdskLicensing/Current/helper/AdskLicensingInstHelper change --help

### Also, either method seems to deploy fine while at the login window, so no worries there.

### Hope this helps some folks out!

I figured this one out, the version was updated back in December and I seem to have an older version.
