licensing when replacing dying machine


Recommended Posts



We're running retrospect professional to back up three Windows XP machines.


One of the machines has a hardware problem, and we're replacing it. It's not the machine that runs the main retrospect program -- it's one of the clients.


Is it possible to back the license off of this machine and put it on the new one? Do we have to back the licenese off in some way before we install on the new machine?

If one of the client machines is failing, all you have to do is go to the backup server under Configure>Clients, right click on the dying client and choose forget. This will leave you with an available client which you can use to backup your new system. You will need to add this client to any scripts that contained the old client.
