How to Move a Snapt Aria License

Once you have serialized a purchased license, it becomes “hardware locked” to the install key that has been generated.
Since the install key is made up of several pieces, if they change due to you moving your Snapt Aria license to a new server, you might end up being locked out of the user interface (UI).


License issues will NEVER stop the load balancer or web accelerator from running even if you are locked out of the UI. They only prevent you from managing them.

Here’s what you need to do to move your Snapt Aria installation and a functional license.

Step 1: Re-Install Snapt Aria

You will need to install Snapt Aria in your new environment.
Snapt Aria can be downloaded and installed for several systems, from vanilla Linux installations, Red Hat distributions, in Open Virtualization Format (OVF), on Virtual Hard Disk (VHD), VMWare, and others

Go to downloads and follow the installation instructions accordingly.

Step 2: Create a Support Ticket

Once you have moved your installation, you can create a ticket or complete a support question form to have your license cleared, at which stage you can re-serialize the license (next step). This will be done free of charge but on a per-instance basis to prevent abuse.

Submit a request ticket to get your license cleared.

Step 3: Serialize Your New LicensInvalid License Key

Serializing is a crucial part of setting up a non-trial version of Snapt Aria. This allows us to generate your license, which in turn will allow you to use the framework, get updates and receive support.

See the Serializing a license guide for further instructions.
