      License key conflict when migrating to new server

      Your post

           I am migrating our FM Server 11 installation to a new server.  I want to get the new installation and configured and confirmed working before switching over.  I installed FMS on the new server but cannot launch the admin console because of the license key conflict message.  Is there a way to have both servers running temporarily during the migration?

               Thank you for the post.

                

               The same license key cannot be installed on two different computers on the same network without conflicting; however, installing the FileMaker Server 11 free trial would be an option that would not conflict.

                

               Please review chapter 5 of the FileMaker Server 11 Getting Started Guide for more information on "Upgrading or moving an existing installation."
