PowerDB licensing is enforced by either a serial number softkey or a hardware key (often called a "dongle") that plugs into a USB port. Without a key PowerDB will run in "reader" mode. This key allows you to easily move a single license between machines installed with PowerDB.
- If a USB Key is lost, you must provide the associated license serial number for replacement at minimal charge, or you must purchase a new license at full cost.
- If a USB Key gets broken, return it to our office and we will replace it for $75, plus shipping.
- If a legacy software key is lost (e.g., due to hard drive failure) there is a $75 replacement fee. The lost license may be replaced with a USB key or a software key.
