The best deal I was able to find on the internet is from Studica at www.studica.com for Maya 2009 Unlimited SuperPack where they are charging $195 for the 14 month license and $389 for the perpectual license for students and educators prices. Keep in mind, if you are going to purchase the 14 month license and not the perpertual license, it will be cheaper and more convenient through the UNI CCC (Computer Consulting Center) IF they get the approval today or tommorrow to buy 50 copies to sell over the next couple of semesters.
Now I am trying to run Maya on one of the machines I have installed it on and directed it to use a network license file with the correct server name in the maya.lic file but I am getting this error (screenshot attached).
8. If you have installed Maya on the same computer as the license server, there may also be a /var/flexlm/maya.lic file. To easily edit the file in the /var/flexlm folder, you will need to run this command: 2b1af7f3a8
