How Many Times I Could Move License From One Computer To Another? 追蹤

Hello,
 
Please clarify details about movement licence from one computer to another. How many times I could move license from one computer to another? And How I can find information about previous relocations?
 
I have SLS with Enterprise Automation 20 printers licence and I need to move SLS to new server.
I found 2 places with description of process. There is no mention about number of relocation licence in FAQ. But in Activation white paper written that I can move it only three times (please find quotes below). Which value is correct?

 

From FAQ:

 

How do I move an activated copy of BarTender (or the Seagull License Server) from one computer to another?

A : Moving an activated copy of the software is a simple two-step process. First, make sure that you have your Product Key Code on hand, as you will need this to activate the product on your new computer. Once you have that, simply deactivate the software from the computer it is currently activated on by accessing the Activation Wizard in BarTender's Help menu. Then use your product key code to activate the software on the new computer using the same activation wizard.
See the Activation white paper if you have any questions about the activation process.
 
If you are moving the Seagull License Server, BarTender's 30 day grace period will allow you to make this move without interrupting printing of the BarTender clients. Just make sure your BarTender clients have access to the new computer hosting Seagull License Server, and that you configure Seagull License Server to use the same port. To minimize downtime, you can install (but not activate) the License Server on the new computer before deactivating it on the old computer. See the Seagull License Server section of this FAQ for more information on the Seagull License Server and BarTender's Grace Period.
 

 

Same question from Activation white paper:

How do I move my software to a different computer?

 

If your software came with a
hardware security key, simply move the key to the new computer and activate it.
The software will run on whichever computer has the key attached. If you do not
have a hardware security key, deactivate the software on the old computer and
activate it on the new one. Both deactivation and activation can be done by
running the Activation Wizard. You can only move the software in this manner,
three times over the life of the license
. A significant hardware change can
also count as a "move". See below for details.

It looks like your second quote is referring to a "Hardware Key" which is normally a dongle that sits on a CPU port (USB, Serial or LTP) that allows the software to function.  I would believe the first quote.

From the EULA, under 'Edition-specific Licensing Restrictions':

  1. You may install and activate Automation Editions of BarTender
    on as many computers as you would like. However, once you activate Seagull
    License Server on a computer, you will not be able to use it on any other
    computers unless you move it. In order to move it, you must deactivate the
    software on the original computer and then activate it on a different computer.
    You are only allowed three moves for this version of the software. Changing the
    hardware significantly on a computer will also count as a move.

     

So yes, that is accurate, a single product Key code has a limit of three moves to different computers throughout it's lifetime.

We will then be able to tell you how many activations you have used so far.
