Information on licences and certificates
- Which versions require which licenses on the same hardware.
If the second digit of the version (e.g. 3.4.4) differs from the version currently installed (e.g. 3.5.5) you need a new license. If the 3rd digit (e.g. 3.4.4) matches, the same license can be used.
- Server Certificates:
All versions of easyDCP/easyDCP Plus can use the same server certificates, as long the hardware has not been reconfigured or a essential OS update system has taken place.
If you need a new license, the creation of the License & Certificate Request checks whether a server certificate already exists and if then applies it to the newly issued license.
- Signature Certificates:
In principle, new signature certificates are issued for each license activation.
