How do I migrate my RStudio Package Manager license from one machine to another?

Follow

To move your license from one RStudio Package Manager installation to another, execute the following steps:

Online license

  1. Install RStudio Package Manager on the new machine, and verify that it is functioning properly. If this machine has never had RStudio Package Manager on it before, you will have the standard 45-day trial period before a license is required.
  2. Deactivate the license on the old server:
    $ /opt/rstudio-pm/bin/license-manager deactivate
  3. Activate the license on the new server:  
    $ /opt/rstudio-pm/bin/license-manager activate <product-key>
  4. Restart the server with the operating-system-specific instructions in the admin guide here.
  5. Verify the status of the license on the new server:
    $ /opt/rstudio-pm/bin/license-manager status

Offline license

  1. Install RStudio Package Manager on the new machine, and verify that it is functioning properly. If this machine has never had RStudio Package Manager on it before, you will have the standard 45-day trial period before a license is required.
  2. Deactivate the license on the old server.  Note that this will make the old server unlicensed, so you will need to apply a new license if you wish to keep using it:
    $ /opt/rstudio-pm/bin/license-manager deactivate-offline
  3. Use this application to generate an offline activation request: http://apps.rstudio.com/offline-activation/
  4. Follow the instructions in the app to activate the license on the server.
  5. Restart the server with the operating-system-specific instructions in the admin guide here.
  6. Verify the status of the license on the new server:
    $ /opt/rstudio-pm/bin/license-manager status-offline

For more information on license management, see this section of the RStudio Package Manager administrator's guide.
