A floating license enables multiple people to share one license (but not at the same time), for example, people on a world-wide team working in different time zones, or for when some people only use the system occasionally.

Right, so only one user can have the license in use at a given time. So it has not to do with the license handling on the network, but the how the license is be assigned. There is also token licensing.

 Hi Daniel Moul,

Thanks for reply.

If i use nodelock license for CLM applications, can i access (edit/modify/delete) in other system which are in same network or not.

In the Jazz world there are no nodelock licenses (which are tied to individual workstations). The nearest equivalent in Jazz licensing is the authorized user. Jazz licensing is managed on the server, not the client and is scoped to a Jazz Team Server. If you have an authorized license you can log in to Jazz applications on that JTS (CCM, RM, etc) from any workstation on the network.
