Hello Ankit,

Thank you for taking your time to post here. 

Chemkin always tries to use the Research license (aa_r) first and then look at Teaching license (aa_t_a) if aa_r is not available.

So you can try to use Options file to restrict the users/computers/hosts to checkout the Research licenses/Teaching licenses.

You can refer to this link for examples of Options files

You can name it as ansyslmd.opt and leave it under the same location as license files (Default is C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\Shared Files\Licensing\license_files)


Every changes to the Options file would require you to Stop and Start the ANSYS License Manager.

Thank you.
