Deactivate Dameware seat-based licenses

Updated: September 12, 2017

This topic describes how to deactivate a seat-based license and move it to another computer when:

  • The computer on which you installed Dameware is no longer accessible.
  • The computer on which you installed Dameware is accessible.

If the computer is not accessible

If the computer on which you installed Dameware is no longer available, you must use the SolarWinds Customer Portal to deactivate the licenses.

You can reset the license of more than one machine at the same time.

  1. Log in to the SolarWinds Customer Portal.
  2. Click Licenses > Manage Licenses.
  3. Locate your license key, and click Deactivate license manually.
