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.
