script or automate license borrowing for ArcGIS Desktop

Idea created by 1_hennermann on Jul 15, 2014
    We have a fleet of 20 managed laptops on which we run installation and maintenance scripts over night. The laptops need to be ready to be taken into the field first thing in the morning, including to fieldwork locations where there is no internet access. It would be great to script ArcGIS license borrowing so that over night each laptop would check if it still has an ArcGIS license and for what length of time, and if that is below 7 days, return the license and re-borrow one for another 30 days.

    I know, in this scenarion we could Single Use licenses, but concurrent are so much easier to administrer, and actually Esri (UK) are trying to get us to use concurrent licenses.
