Moving License 6 from an old x86 to a newest one

Sat Dec 03, 2011 2:31 pm

Hi everybody,
we have 2 x86 computer with ROS license 6 on board. We would like to replace both machine with a couple of newest servers.
Question: can I move the license?
Of course the old servers will be dismissed...

Thanks in advance...

License is always "attached" to the disk. You can move the licence together with the disk - it's the only option. If the hard drive is broken, you can ask for a "replacement key" (it can cost few $) to install it on a new one - but MikroTik can ask you to send them the broken one :).
The rest of hardware doesn't matter, only the disk matters :).

Thank you dasiu.
One of the two server has IDE disk... It is impossible to install it on a new hardware... Only SATA disk allowed...
Maybe the other one... I'll check...
