License key for hardware migration

Hi All,

I am going to migrate hardware in two systems. one 4.6 C and another PI 7.0 . The new systems will have same IP and hostname .

hence OS cannot come up before migration activity starts, I am unable to get the hardware key now .

My question is will I get the license key during the day of migration .

If not Can I install temporary license ? Are there in prerequisites for installating

Thanks,

Suman

    Hi Suman,

    2 options to address your concern

    1. If you have access SAP Service Market Place, then browse through for your Key Requested option to find your system license Key (if you have your new system hardware key then it's easy to find otherwise you may have to isolate to find the right one)

    2. You can always use the Temp licese for timebeing. No prerequisites

    Regards

    Getting the migration key and New license (your hardware key will be different) only takes a few minutes so I wouldn't be very concerned....

    Hi there!

    Ur SAP license is tied to the hardware key.

    you would need to request another license..

    Hi,

    I need to request a license . But will I get in time ( half an hour ) on Sunday ? I can request only after server migrated .

    Regarding temp license I see from below link .

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70/helpdata/en/97/76934257a5c96ae10000000a155106/content.htm

    Prerequisites

    · Within the last four weeks there has been a valid, applied for license and it has been checked

    BUt as the system is live for years, we don't have any license applied in last four months .

    Thanks,

    Suman

    Hi Chittaranjan,

    You can get the license key immediately it wont consume more than five minutes after applying.

    If its only installation, we can get 30 days temporary license.

    Migrating means, are you doing restore\systemcopy also?

    Your temporary license (after installation) may expire after restore\systemcopy.

    Just search in SDN, for how to install license. Its a simple procedure.

    But will I get in time ( half an hour ) on Sunday ?

    Don't think that some one will receive your request....and they will cross check your details..... etc,...

    Getting license is an automated procedure. when you give your details (HW key, system number, license, sid etc,) it will generate a 128 bit encrypted asci code.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Nagendra.

    Hi,

    I have requested for license number of times and have got it also .

    But what if the marketplace site is down during that day .

    So I want to apply temporary license.

    My question is the prerequite for temporary license is mentioned as " no active license should have been installed in last 4 weeks " But we have the system running and hence licnse is active for more than a year .

    Thanks
