Using Local Single Stand-Alone License to connect to Server

Hi all,

I am on my Laptop with a "Stand-Alone" Single User License. I would like to connect to a customer's Server Using my Laptop's License so that I dont have to Re-Assign another user in the System to "Manager". I would like to connect via my own License.

    The SAP Business One License file is specifically based on the hardware ID of the machine that the license manager is installed on and that license is verified by that Db. It would probably be less time consuming to change your ODBC connection to the clients SQL Server install and use one of their licenses temporarily.

      Hi Eddi,

      Thanks for the reply.

      My client has (8 users and 1 manager) 8 licenses which are all allocated to 8 users and they are all logged on to the company so I cannot use a license from their server, even temporarily to allocate to the "manager" so that I can work in the Live DB as "manager".

      My Laptop has a single user license. Currently, i restore a backup of my clients DB locally, but this means that I am not working on their live DB. In certain cases, when I'm on site, I have to be logged into their Live DB to achieve some tasks. I would like to use my laptop's Single Access License to connect to their Server Live DB to do work on it.

      Is there no way I can connect my laptop to their Server and allocate my Single License to the Live DB's "manager"???
