DUP_DISPLAY explained for Windows and Linux

DISPLAY keyword means the console/command prompt/Putty session display ID, through which licensing activities are being initiated.

Example:

The display name will remain same throughout the windows machine.

When set to DUP_GROUP=UHD means the duplicate grouping is (DUP_USER|DUP_HOST|DUP_DISPLAY), so for a user on the same host and display, additional uses of a feature do not consume additional licenses Keeping the above in mind .
