You cannot deactivate only SQL Backup but if you deactivate all products, reactivate again with SQL Compare, Data Compare etc it should activate all the products except SQL Backup.
You should then be able to use the SQL Backup activation on another machine.
Running the following command on all SQL Servers with SQL Backup installed will return their licensing information :
execute master..sqbutility 1021, @LicenseType OUTPUT, @Version OUTPUT, @SerialNumber OUTPUT, @DateInstalled OUTPUT, @DateFirstUsed OUTPUT, @RevokeErrorsv4 OUTPUT, @Warningsv5 OUTPUT;
The function takes no additional parameters, and returns seven values – an integer @LicenseType, which will be one of the following:
- Code: Select all
0 No License – the trial period has expired.
1 Trial License (equivalent to Professional in features, but only valid for 14 days). Trial Extensions also fall in this category.
2 Standard License
3 Professional License
6 'Lite' License
I hope this helps.
