ILO Amplifier, number of servers, change license

Hi,

I downloaded ILO Amplifier and entered 100 servers during the registration. In the Q&A there is stated that there is no fixed limit for the number of servers. But on the info page in ILOAmplifier GUI I found this:

Registered for number of servers : 100
 
Is there any way to reenter the activation key? I reregisterd, this time with 1000 servers. But I can't find any way to change the key. I also performed a reconfiguration of the Amplifier, but it does not ask for a new license again. It this number bound to the license or is this even in the downloaeded ova?

Re: ILO Amplifier, number of servers, change license

I've no prolbems in adding servers. The problem is that ILOAmplifier tells me that it's registered for only 100 servers, this is what I need to change.

Hi

It doesnt looks like its bound to the Installation file. (downloaded file)

Is it possible to share the Screenshot. Also try new appliance and select the Server range to be 1000 / 10000 and download the file.
And try to configure and check if the behaviour is same.

Thank you

Re: ILO Amplifier, number of servers, change license

I was able to add more than 100 servers but I'm not sure what this "Registered for number of servers: 100" is about and if things will fail in future. I'd like to avoid redeploying the ova/VM, isn't there a way to just change the number of hosts?

Re: ILO Amplifier, number of servers, change license

"Registered for number of servers: 100" is just estimated number of servers you have mentioned during the time of registration.

At the time of registration to download HPE iLO Amplifier, when you specify the estimated number of servers, it will create Activation Key on bases of information provided.

This activation key is used at the first time you login to iLO amplifier, later you cannot change this activation key from iLO amplifier appliance or host.

As you said you'd like to avoid redeploying the ova/VM, but that is only the option to change “Registered for number of servers” value.

If you want to change "Registered for number of servers", you have to register on iLO Amplifier Pack page again and select any one of the below estimated number of servers and it will generate activation key accordingly.

10

100

1,000

10,000

20,000

Later take backup of your existing iLO Amplifier.

Deploy new HPE iLO Amplifier appliance and activate with new activation key.

Then restore the backup of your existing iLO amplifier to new iLO Amplifier appliance.
