Before you move a network license, you have to return the license to the License Activation Server. If the license is not correctly returned before changes are made on the License Server, the license can become broken or lost.

Local License Removal

Local licenses, activated from license files cannot be returned or reused.

You cannot reactivate a removed local license.

To remove a local license, you use the License Administrator on the WorkStation or Enterprise Server where the local license is activated.

Network License Return

To return a network license means that a license is transferred from the License Server back to the License Activation Server. A returned network license, located on the License Activation Server, is not available for the WorkStation or Enterprise Server to check out.

For more information, see Network License Return .

Lost License

If the License Server, WorkStation, or Enterprise Server physically crash and you cannot retain activated licenses, the licenses are lost. Activated licenses cannot be reactivated by the License Activation Server.

For more information, see Lost License .

License Repair

A license can in several ways become damaged. Use the License Administrator to repair a damaged network license on the License Server where the damaged license is located. Local licenses cannot be repaired. Instead you have to remove the damaged local licenses and reactivate the licenses from new license files.

For more information, see License Repair .

License Backup

Schneider Electric recommends backing up the License Server files on a regular basis. To back up the license files, copy all files in the folder to an external resource. This backup is primarily intended for cases when hardware or the operating system malfunctions.
