 +======Distribuzione gestita di Rhino per Mac======

 +> **Summary:​** //Discusses how to deploy Rhino for Mac configured to use the Zoo//
  
 +=====Question=====
 +We recently purchased a Rhino for Mac Education Lab License. What are some strategies to help deploy it configured to use a Zoo license server on several computers at our university?
 +
 +We use [[http://​www.jamfsoftware.com/​products/​casper-suite/​|Casper]] and other management systems to build packages and push applications out to client systems. This usually includes bundling the license configuration information with the distribution application.
 +
 +=====Answer=====
 +Here is some helpful information.
 +
 +1) When you run Rhino for Mac for the first time, it creates the following folders:
 +
 +  /​Library/​Application Support/​McNeel/​Rhinoceros/​License Manager
 +  /​Library/​Application Support/​McNeel/​Rhinoceros/​License Manager/​Licenses
 +
 +Important: Each of these folders is **chmod** with **+rwx** so anyone can write information to it.
 +
 +2) The //​Rhinoceros/​License Manager/​Licenses//​ folder contains Rhino'​s license file, which for Rhino for Mac is named **781b000c-8d0b-4ed3-8ead-213bdb848f39.lic**. ​
 +
 +For standalone licenses, this file is encrypted, unreadable, and unique per system.
 +
 +For network licenses, though, this file is clear text, readable, and can be moved between one system and another.
 +
 +3) For systems that have a network license, you will also find a LicensesZooClient.settings file that in the //​Rhinoceros/​License Manager// folder. This file is also clear text, readable, and can be moved between one system and another. It contains the name of the Zoo server as entered into Rhino.
 +
 +If your deployment system performs steps 1, 2, and 3, besides pushing the Rhino application bundle into each system'​s Applications folder, you should be able to deploy Rhino for Mac on all your systems.
