Reuse PRTG License for a new environment



Your Vote:



I would like to ask the following question.

We currently have an environment that we are not using for production elements.

We would like to reuse the same license for a new environment in order to re-balance with production elements

Can we reuse the license of the environment that will be shutdown?

Kind regards, Pedro Cardoso

Hello there,

A license can only be used on one system. If you want to use it on a new system, you need to deactivate it on the old one first. This is possible in Setup | License. Afterwards, you can activate the license on the new system and the old one will continue for 30 days. After this time span it gets limited to 100 sensors.

Kind regards,
