Licence restrictions / backup / restore...

    Hi All

    I am just wondering if anyone can shed any light on any possible restrictions with the Plesk license's - from a backup / disaster recovery point of view what would happen in the following theoretical situation:

    - 1 Server with a single Plesk license hosting multiple sites.
    - This server is destroyed / damaged beyond repair including the drives.
    - All data has been backed up to another machine using the Plesk backup manager
    - 1 new server is setup with the same OS / Plesk version

    ...would you be able to just upload the license key / file from the previous server and restore the data or is the license tied to the previous machine?

    I am sure the Plesk backup / restore program works fine but I would like test / dummy run this process before making our newly aquired Plesk server / license live!

    Thanks in Advance for any responses!

    Plesk license key is not related to server's hardware. You can use license on any hardware node.
