New BASIS Licensing Paradigm
BASIS is very pleased to introduce a new self-healing perpetual license that removes the administrative burden and potential downtime associated with server environment changes that alter the host-id and therefore invalidate the license. Until now, these changes required a license reset. License resets are NOT REQUIRED for perpetual licenses! A simple restart of the BLM with a perpetual license will automatically re-register the license with the new host id via an internet connection with the BASIS license generator.
All new licenses and license resets will take on the perpetual format. The perpetual licence must be registered from the server that will host the BASIS License Manager (BLM). This can be done during product installation or via the Admin utility's "License Registration" option. In either case, the "Register and install a license automatically" checkbox must be selected. Thereafter, new machine installations, disaster recovery instances, changes to the OS, and hard drive replacements don't need a reset, therefore there are no reset fees, and less administrative hassle for you and your customer.
