Using Acronis License Server
Acronis License Server is a mechanism that tracks licenses of Acronis products.
A license key is associated with the Media Access Control address (MAC address) of the machine managed by Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 agent. In cases when the machine has multiple network interface cards (NICs), the license key is associated with the first enumerated physical NIC and its MAC address.
Acronis License Server can import multiple license keys from .txt or .eml files, saving you from the time-consuming procedure of typing in numbers.
When upgraded, recovered or reinstalled, the Acronis License Server keeps all the imported licenses intact. However, it is recommended that you copy the file(s) with license keys to removable media, or create a hard copy of that file(s) and keep it in a safe place. This ensures that you have license data available in case of hardware failure.
