Licensing Question for Replacing Existing FMS Hardware

Question asked by CreativeFM on Nov 10, 2015

Hello FM brethren,


I am moving our company's production FMS to a new VM from its current VM. Once I'm done with the move, I'll be decommissioning the previously used VM leaving only the new VM in production when all is said and done.


Now, my question relates to licensing during this move:

Can I use the same FMS license (the one currently installed on what will be the "old" VM) when configuring the new VM? At any given time during the transition only one of these FMS instances will be actually hosting database files accessed by FMP clients.


I'm sure this isn't the first time someone has come across this scenario, but I'm not able to find any discussions on this topic.


Many thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide!
