A backup server is the machine where Thinware vBackup is installed. If you need licensing for more than 1 instance of Thinware vBackup (if you have more than one backup server), simply provide the server name, hardware ID and and the quantity of entitlements to assign for each in the special license configuration instructions below.
VERY IMPORTANT: Licenses for Thinware vBackup are based on the hardware ID of the backup server. This information is required for our Sales Team to generate the license.
To obtain the hardware ID of the backup server, download and install Thinware vBackup (a license is not required to download and install Thinware vBackup), open Thinware vBackup Client and choose Configure Licensing from the Tools menu. The hardware ID is displayed at the bottom of the Configure Licensing screen. Please note that this feature is only available in Thinware vBackup version 4.0 or later.
About Thinware vBackup
Thinware vBackup is a tool that helps automate multiple (often no cost) utilities from VMware. These utilities, including but not limited to VMware Virtual Disk Development Kit, VMware Consolidated Backup, VMware vCenter Converter Standalone, VMware Workstation, VMware Player, etc. are developed, managed and supported exclusively by VMware. Thinware has no control over the functionality or continued availability of these utilities. Before purchasing, you need to understand the requirements, know issues and how to troubleshoot problems with the VMware utilities you will be using Thinware vBackup to automate. A lack of experience with or knowledge of these utilities can cause undue system outages or data loss and will most likely result in a poor user experience with our product.
