BMC Remedy AR System administrators and subadministrators must have a Fixed license.

Multiple users can use the same Floating licenses, one user at a time: they are available on a first-come, first-served basis. This type of license is designed for users who occasionally need to modify and save requests. When a user who is assigned a Floating license logs in to BMC Remedy AR System, the user is given a Read license. When the user attempts to perform a search, modify, or submit operation, BMC Remedy AR System checks for an available Floating license, and the following occurs:
An AR System server license key activates fixed write licenses, read and restricted read licenses (which you might have to purchase, depending on your sales contract) . You can purchase additional fixed write licenses and floating write licenses from BMC or from an authorized reseller.
