Does a DCE restore include licence numbers ?

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by rjeeps on 2016-08-15


Does a full restore of a DCO or a DCE instance include all the licence keys that have been entered originally ?

Thanks

Dear Robin,

Yes, Restoring the backup to the same Server/MAC Address from which the backup was taken will restore the DCE licenses as well. 

Note: You can restore the backup to the same Server/same MAC address as the licenses are bonded with MAC Address of the Server. 

In case if you are restoring the DCE backup to a new Server due to Server issue, then you will need to contact your local country technical support to migrate the licenses to the new hardware/virtual machine. 

 

Migrating a StruxureWare Data Center Expert hardware server to a virtual appliance:


To migrate a StruxureWare Data Center Expert hardware server to a virtual appliance, you
must purchase and apply an activation key. Additionally, you must contact APC Support for
new node license keys and application license keys for the virtual appliance.
1. Perform a back up of the StruxureWare Data Center Expert hardware server, using
the Server Backup/Restore option, accessed from the Server Administration
Settings option in the System menu.


2. Deploy the demo version OVA, and configure it using the hardware equivalents for
the StruxureWare Data Center Expert Basic, Standard, or Enterprise server from
which you are migrating. The available disk space for the virtual appliance must
be greater than the disk space used by the hardware server.
You cannot restore to a virtual appliance with fewer CPU, fewer network adapters,
less RAM, or less available disk space than the hardware server.
See help for Deploying and configuring a StruxureWare Data Center Expert virtual
appliance, and StruxureWare Data Center Expert virtual appliance equivalent
configurations.


3. Perform a restore on the virtual appliance, using the Server Backup/Restore option,
accessed from the Server Administration Settings option in the System menu.
You cannot restore to a virtual machine other than the StruxureWare Data Center
Expert virtual appliance.


4. Apply the activation key to the virtual appliance.


5. Login to the StruxureWare Data Center Expert client. In the "License Keys" display,
accessed from the Server Administration Settings option in the System menu. apply the new node license keys and application license keys you received from APC Support.

 

Regards,

Bala
