There are rarely sold and expensive server solution, and there is the inevitable desire of some users to purchase one license and install it on many of their servers. Not to mention, to not buy it at all :)
Now the activation process this software looks like this: on the server where it is installed, at the request of the admin generated Hardware ID. This Hardware ID on our licensing server, we do license file, place it in the directory, then for a given instance of iron it ceases to consider itself a demo version.
But our software is able to live also on virtual machines within different virtualization environments (this is one of the competitive advantages, you can not deny), respectively, it is now possible to replicate the solution under VM directly from a license simply by copying it where necessary — everything will work fine.
In addition, failed to detect Hardware ID generator, reliably running, such as a RAID controller from one vendor are + the same model HDD.
There is a strong desire to remain under this scheme of activation, therefore a question: does anyone Know a ready solution to generate the Hardware ID, operating in such circumstances?
