apply license to Active Directory group?

We are rolling out QV11 to a field sales force, who are disconnected most of the time.  We are sending the QV desktop and a QVW through device management, which also silently connects to the server to lease a license.  This is because it is a requirement that they are able to open QlikView correctly the first time, regardless of whether they are connected.

To do this, we assign CALs to the usernames on the server side before the client is pushed out.  Assigning them to an Active Directory group does not work; we have to list the individual IDs.  This will become a maintenance problem as we intend to eventually roll out to thousands of users.  Is there a way to do this that allows us to use an AD group, or any other way to automate assigning the licenses on the server side?  Or an enhancement for this coming?

Thanks

You can automate license assigment using QlikView's powertools.

And how do you do that?  There is no documentation on how to use the qv-user-manager.exe to import AD users from a text file.  Do you have any instructions available?

There is a readme file with the syntaxis and some examples.
