Online Documentation for SQL Backup for SQL Server

License deactivation 

Suppose, you have decided to move a license from one instance to another. In this case, at first, you need to deactivate this license key and after that activate it on another instance.

The deactivation operation is performed by means of the License Deactivation Wizard.


Your license key will be deactivated and EMS SQL Backup Service will not work with this SQL Server instance. After deactivation this Wizard informs EMS that this license key is deactivated and you will be able to activate it on another SQL Server instance.


To deactivate your license, perform the following steps:

  1. select the Deactivate license item of the server popup menu to run the License Deactivation Wizard;
  2. select the preferable license deactivation method and complete the set of wizard steps;
  3. make sure that the deactivation process has been completed successfully – the license information in the overall status window must disappear and license must become inactive in the Members Area.
