using multiple Iloks on one PT system?

I was wondering if it would be possible to use, multiple Iloks on a HD system?
This way I could take my plugins with me to a studio while also using the plugins owned by the studio.
Anyone tried this?

Shouldn't be a problem, iLok is made to be able to do that.

I use three iLoks on my PT system. No problems at all.
It's pretty much imperitave to use Waves plugs on their own iLok, then I have another with all my other licenses, then a third one with demo licenses which would serve as a backup under Zero Downtime if needed.

Be aware that if you intend to use your plugs on a another system it can be a bit niggly (not because of the iLoks though)
You need to copy your plugins over to the Digi plugins folder on the new computer (being VERY careful not to replace any plugs that the other user with older versions.... or newer versions for which they do not have valid authorisations)
You also need to be aware that PT7 is very susceptible to instability caused by incorrect plugin versions. Be sure you are using PT7 optimised plugs if you are using PT7.

My solution to porting my sessions to a commercial studio has always been to take a bootable HD with all my plugs installed and boot from that, then transfer any of the studios plugs to MY HD rather than the other way round. OR simply use the plugs available on the studio's system.
Some commercial studios are (unsurprisingly) very wary of letting someone install something on their studio system drive.
