1. Licensing the active user accounts
migRaven is licensed for the number of the active AD accounts. One can count the number of active accounts to be licensed with our tool AD-Counter.
For licensing, we need this number of AD-Accounts, your FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) and the sub-domain names that you want to include. This information will be encrypted in your license key.
2. Server-Licensing New in version 2.1.1010
From the migRaven-Version 2.1.1010, it is possible to obtain licenses for servers. There are two variants:
2.1. Specifying the server names or IP-addresses
Enter the names of the server: e.g. Srv-Bookkeeping, Srv-Production, or 192.168.0.2, 192.168.0.5. One can scan only this specified server, which is encrypted in the license key.
2.2. Specifying the server number
Specify only the number of the servers in this online licensing model. If you scan a server, then its name is included in the license file. If the licence-amount is exhausted, then you cannot select any other server. The advantage is that you do not need to determine the server names. However this results in the following mechanisms that you should consider:
– Entering the server name the first time and the IP-address for the same server the second time costs two licenses.
– Scanning (for test purposes) a share of your client costs one license.
– Entering a wrong server name costs a server license.
This server licensing is a new function. We are aware of the fact that we need to make this licensing model more customer-friendly. If you encounter any problems, please contact us.
As long as servers are added to this registration, the license changes which is then checked by us via Web. If migRaven should be installed on another computer, then the last license-file mr.cfg must be taken. If this file is not correct,an error message appears.
