Hi all, How can we transfer the PI license from one server to another ?
Can you elaborate a little bit?
PI License file is bound to the given machine, if there are any significant hardware changes (either on the same machine or you're moving PI Server), you need to generate and deploy a new license.
Thanks for your answer.
So I have only to keep the same hardware configuration then copy the PI license from the source Pi server to the destination? Correct me If I am wrong ?

If it's identical machine then yes.
Otherwise you'd have to generate new machine signature file (.MSF) and generate new PI License file based on that .MSF file.
See KB000303 for details:
Aside from the technical part, you would need to pay attention to the terms of your license. A machine-specific license file is bound to a specific hardware. There is some room for normal upgrade or hardware change to the same machine. However, if you decide to generate a new license file for a new machine you would need to use the same MLA procedure on the new machine. You may have to contact OSIsoft Tech Support and ask them to "release" your old license file so you can use it on a new server. There is a limit on the frequency of generating a new license file on a new machine.
Thank you Ahmad for the clarifications,
just one question, the "release" from Osisoft to regenerate the license will be paid or for free?
Please note that all pricing questions should go to your Account Manager. The situation will be dependent on your usage and the terms within your particular contract. There are some license types which are more subscription style (such as vCampus which will timeout), whereas others are perpetual, so there are additional factors to take into consideration for a proper answer. This is a discussion best had with your Account Manager rather than over a forum. Thanks!
