License transfer, is this supposed to happen


Suffered a disaster when one of my motherboards had a stroke. I replaced it and fortunately Windows Server was able to recover, had to reactivate but all was well after that. I also had to transfer the DrivePool license which was no surprise. The surprise came when I renamed the server. Once again I had to transfer the license. Is the License transfer triggered by a named change? Is there a limit to the number of times this can happen before I'm locked out?

Reason I ask is I want to change the name again and maybe even again.

Thanks :)

Yup, actually.  

We do track the system name.   And we don't automatically push the updated information to our servers (we hope you appreciate that, even if it causes a hassle).

That said, the system name is mostly for me.  As in, it makes identification of systems SUPER easy.  So resetting/deactivating the licenses is much easier on me, which means much quicker and simpler for you. :)
