If you wish to upgrade or change your server hardware or network configuration, please be aware that PFBucket relies on a unique hardware identifier to manage your entitlements, called the PFHostID. If you upgrade or change your server's network interface controllers, this may cause your PFHostID to change and prevent your entitlements from being used.
To avoid any problems whilst upgrading your server, we recommend the following steps:
- Before upgrading, deactivate all your entitlements by clicking the Deactivate All button.
- Apply any upgrades you need to your server
- Log in to your PFBucketd server and re-activate your entitlements using the Activate All button.
This will ensure the PFHostID used to activate entitlements reflects any changes to your server.
