Migrate DCFM from Windows 2003 to Windows 2008

Hello All,

We are planning to migrate DCFM from Win 2k3 to Win 2k8. I have few questions:

Can I use the same license that is being used with Win 2k3?

Can I have DCFM running on Win 2k3 and Win 2k8 with the same license at the same time?

Yes the same license should work on the windows 2008 machine also .

Regarding your second question yes, two instances of DCFM are recommended for redundancy. The DCFM End-User License Agreement (EULA) allows the same license to be installed on a second server for disaster recovery purposes only.

Thanks Annie.

I do not want to use the second license for DR, once I verify that things are working fine I would uninstall DCFM from the 2k3 server.
