Machine and Server Name Changes specifically apply to Pre-XM, file based, Licensing. With this file based licensing, both SELECTserver V8 and Nodelock V8 license files are encrypted to a specific workstation, defined by the machine name. When Pre-XM Bentley Software is installed onto a new machine, a new license file must be generated for the new machine.
To make or request a Machine or Server Name Change, a user's web login must have the Site Administrator or License Manager Role.
Click on the View button under SELECTserver(s) or Nodelocks and Unassigned, depending on which you need to modify.
Once you can view the licenses, click on the Manage hyperlink to the right of the license you wish to modify.
Once on the Manage page, change the radio button to Move License File. Then enter the new machine anme in the New Machine Name field.
Finally, enter your email address into the Email confirmation to field (or the address where you'd like to send the file) and click Sent It.
