Origin administrator, obtaining license for user's computer

If you are the administrator for a 1-seat or multi-seat node locked package, you can allow the user's to obtain their own Origin licenses or you can handle the licensing process. If you decide to handle the licensing, you can use Origin's license dialog on the user's computer to obtain the license, or you can get the needed computer details and obtain the license from a different computer. In either case, you should follow the "user" instructions provided above.
