Upgrading from License Server 1.x

Refer to the instructions below for situations wherein you need to upgrade from legacy License Server versions. Please note that we strongly recommend upgrading to License Server 3 as soon as possible.

Note

Make sure that you migrate your data before starting to use License Server with JRebel.


Upgrading from License Server 1.4.13

  1. Open Help > Backup/Export.
  2. Export the data as jr-license-server-export.xml.
  3. Copy the file to the root directory of the new License Server installation.
  4. Start the new License Server.

If the data was migrated successfully, the file should be renamed to jr-license-server-export.xml.migrated.

Note

Statistics for seats in use are not migrated due to technical reasons (there is a fundamental difference in data models). The migration only applies to uploaded licenses and time-saved statistics!


Upgrading from any License Server version prior to 1.4

  1. Download the exporter utility.
  2. Run it as java -jar exporter.jar <zt-license-server directory>.
  3. The exporter utility saves the data as jr-license-server-export.xml in the working directory.
  4. Copy this file to the root directory of the License Server installation.
  5. Start the new License Server.

If the data was successfully migrated, the file should be renamed to jr-license-server-export.xml.migrated.
