We recently installed a new server for the purpose of hosting our SQL databases. We had prior incidents of SQL on our old server (SBS 2003, SQL 2000) but are no longer running SQL there at all. All SQL databases are on the new server SBS 2008, SQL 2008. We own Multi-server 7.6 with one license for SQL. How do we detach the license from the non-functioning databases and attach it to the new SQL databases?

 

Thanks in advance!

You need to right click on the old sql server inside configure>volumes and go to license to release the database license.

 

For Windows 2008, you should be using Retrospect 7.7

I have the same problem, but I have already uninstalled the previous instance of multi server from the old server. On the new server, all the sql servers show unlicensed and the license file shows 1 used 0 available.

 

I am still backing up the same database. It shows unlicensed but it was licensed on the other instance of multi server on the old server.

 

thanks
