CoolSpools Licensing

Software licenses are available on a per LPAR basis

We also offer license transfers and special arrangements for backup and DR systems.

License transfers

If you need help with any of the techniques described below, feel free to contact our support team.

We have a new machine. Can we transfer the software to it?

Yes, this can be done, and will be free so long as your support and maintenance contract is up to date.

See our license transfer instructions for details of the technical procedure to be followed.

Please complete and return our license transfer request form for each system/LPAR from which one or more licenses are to be transferred.

Do we need a new license key?

Probably. If the new machine has exactly the same serial number and LPAR number as your old one, then the key won’t change but you’ll need to re-enter the old key on the new machine. If either the serial number or the LPAR number has changed, you’ll need a new key.

See our licence transfer instructions for details of the technical procedure to be followed.

Please complete and return our licence transfer request form for each system/LPAR from which one or more licenses are to be transferred.
