To move your concurrent license to a new server, you will first deactivate the license on the old server, then install the license administrator and license manager on the new server, and finally activate the license on the new server.
First, deactivate the license either online or on the old server:
- Deactivate from the old server:
Note that the license cannot be in use by end users when these steps are performed and they will be unable to access the license until the new server is activated and they are connected.
- Open the Golden Software License Administrator.
- Click Deactivate on the left side of the License Administrator.
- In the Select a product to deactivate table, click the desired product in the Activated Products list.
License Administrator: Deactivating a concurrent use license on a license server.
- Click Deactivate.
If the old server has already been decommissioned or is no longer available, see the article I've already uninstalled my software. How do I deactivate it? for instructions.
Set up and activate the license on the new server:
Follow the instructions in the article How do I set up my license server for Strater, Surfer and Grapher? to set up and activate the license on the new server computer.
The conversion is now complete. The last step is to have your end-users connect to the new server using these instructions, or push the new server through to the end-user machines using these instructions.
