    Our scientist are often outside our center (e.g. on research cruises). When leasing a concurrent license for this time they have alwas to delete the license manager entry in ArcGIS Administrator. This is because the program always checks for the license manager at startup when you a in a networked environment. This is the case even on research vessels without any internet connection.
    Without deleting the license manager string in ArcGIS Administrator startup of any ArcGIS program is very very slow in this circumstances. For our scientists such workaround is not convenient. Why not make (concurrent) license leases more user friendly using an algorithm which always prefers a local license in advance of checking the network for the license manager.
