About Activating Your VirtaMove License

Your VirtaMove activation code enables a specific number of source machines that you can migrate applications from. Each activation code also has an expiry date.

You will be prompted to enter your VirtaMove license information after you connect to a source machine and when you start the tether process. This will occur from:

  • The Tether tab on the VirtaMove Administrative Console when you click Pre-Populate or try to dock a container, and

  • The command line when you try to execute virtapace /M /T, virtamigrate, virtacreate /T, and virtadock for a container that has tether enabled 

If you require a new license, contact a VirtaMove Sales Representative.

You can activate your license in several ways:

  • in the Please Enter Your License Information window, which will prompt you when you try to migrate an application or dock a container that has tether enabled

  • using https://virtamove.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/VDOC/pages/314212601/virtalicense?search_id=a11b06df-f824-4b98-b16b-2d890c4d9a17 on the command line or Tools>Set Activation Code in the Administrative Console

  • using Offline Activation
