automation builder 2.0 standard License transfer
I have two identical PCs on both systems automation builder 2.0 and zenon supervisor 7.5 installed. On PC-1 Automation builder 2.0 has standard license (soft) activated and zenon sp 7.5 has DM-key is activated.
If PC-1 fails due to any reason, i want to transfer the license to PC-2.
1- for zenon supervor 7.5 i need to just plug in the DM-key and activate it on PC-2.
2-How can i transfer the automation builder 2.0 standard license to PC-2?
AFAIK you cannot transfer a soft license from pc to pc once the license has been activated. This would require a hardware dongle at additional cost.In the event the PC with the license installed gets corrupted，you will have to quote the license serial no printed on the hard copy license sheet，for a replacement from abb support.
Second option which could work is， if an image of the PC post license activation is available.However, reloading from the image requires the PC to remain the same from which the image was earlier taken ( i.e. when only PC is reformatted).
Thank you for your time. i was reading Automation builder installation and activation manul where i found license transfer method snapshot is attached.
Is the method mentioned is only for DM-key?
I think we can transfer soft license to another PC.
