If you only have one license (one PKC) then you can only activate a single License Server.  If you want a second (backup) License Server running then you'll need to purchase a second license.  Please note that BarTender already provides 72 hours of fail over redundancy for those times when it fails to connect to License Server at print time.  See the below white paper for details:

The question appears to be if the user can install 2 licenses he already owns to one server. Each license is 5 printers, in order to make 10 printers total.

 

As I understand, this isn't possible, and the second license would have to be installed to another server. And the clients would individually have to be assigned to one or the other. I don't think the client will first check one license server, and if it's over the printer count, check the other one to see if there are available printers?

nRyder is correct; thanks for the clarification.

 

Only one License Server/license can be installed, activated, and run on the same PC, unless you're using virtual machine images to separate the instances on the same physical hardware.

 

Two licenses cannot be combined into one to give a single license that it the sum of printer licenses between the two.  Instead you should speak with the sales department for your region for advice on how best to change your two licenses for a single license for the number of printers that you want.  What they advise will depend on what licenses you currently have already.
