OS update of PC where License Manager is running

Hello,



We have a Floating License activated in a separate PC running Windows Server 2003.  Our SysAd is planning to update the same PC to a Windows Server 2008.  Do we need to deactivate currenlt Floating License and activate again when the PC is already updated to Windows Server 2008?  What needs to be done?



Thank you very much.



Best Regards,

Ruel

Hi Ruel,



To be on the safe side I would recommend to deactivate the license.

Also you may write to your sales representative or just to sales at smartbear.com and ask for their recommendations.
