Product Version:
AhsayOBS: 6.x
OS: All platforms

Description:
The client license model has changed in version 7, AhsayOBM / ACB usages are now calculated per device / installation basis.  This article describes the steps on how to determine the number of additional AhsayOBM / ACB licenses required.

Steps:
To determine the number of client licenses required, refer to the following steps:

  • AhsayOBS installation on Windows:

    1. Download the license requirement calculator by Clicking Here.

    2. Extract the downloaded zip file to the AhsayOBS installation directory %OBS_HOME% (e.g. C:\Program Files\AhsayOBS and AhsayRPS)

    3. In command prompt, browse to the 'check' directory:

       >cd %OBS_HOME%\check

    4. Execute the 'ShowV7Usage.bat' batch file:

       >ShowV7Usage.bat

    5. Open the output usage.xml file found within the same folder with a web browser.

    6. The output file will display the number of license usages of all backup accounts.  Scroll to the end of the file:

      usage.xml
      ...
           </User>
           <ObmCountV6>103</ObmCountV6>
           <AcbCountV6>14</AcbCountV6>
           <ObmCountV7>126</ObmCountV7>
           <AcbCountV7>14</AcbCountV7>
       </Users>

      Where:

      ObmCountV6 : Number of AhsayOBM licenses currently used in version 6 (e.g. 103)
      AcbCountV6 : Number of AhsayACB licenses currently used in version 6 (e.g. 14)

      ObmCountV7 : Number of AhsayOBM licenses required in version 7 (e.g. 126)
      AcbCountV7 : Number of AhsayACB licenses required in version 7 (e.g. 14)


      In the above example, an additional of 23 AhsayOBM device licenses (e.g. 126 - 103 = 23) are required when upgrading your backup server from version 6 to 7.

      Note: The numbers used here are for example purposes only.


  • AhsayOBS installation on Linux:

    1. Download the license requirement calculator by Clicking Here.

    2. Extract the downloaded zip file to the AhsayOBS installation directory $OBS_HOME (e.g. /usr/local/obs)

       >cd $OBS_HOME/check

    4. Execute the 'ShowV7Usage.sh' script file:

       >./ShowV7Usage.sh

    5. Open the output usage.xml file found within the same folder with a web browser.

           <AcbCountV6>14</AcbCountV6>
           <ObmCountV7>126</ObmCountV7>
           <AcbCountV7>14</AcbCountV7>

I need som helt to have this done.

What is the price for the upgrade of the license?

Hi Henning,

Regarding the upgrade fee of your existing license, we cannot answer you publicly through this forum. Can you please submit your question through our partner portal ( https://www.ahsay.com/partners/ ) so that our Sales can help you out?

Kind regards,
Ronnie
