    I tried to look but could not find info, so

    I have two LS licenses, 4-CPU Enterprise owned (on server A) and 2-CPU Enterprise rented (on server B).

    I'm soon moving server A to B, and will later move that 2-CPU rented to yet another server (C).

    1. How do I change server B from 2-CPU rented to 4-CPU owned?

    2. On server A will there be a period while LS still functions after licence is moved to server B (while move/DNS propagation is on progress)?

    this wiki page
    should address the issue you mentioned. if not, please point out so we can improve the document.

    the steps should be
    1. on Server A, run /usr/local/lsws/bin/lshttpd -m
    2. on Server B, copy the serial.no on Server A, then run
    /usr/local/lsws/bin/lshttpd -r

    there are 3 overlap days for 4-CPU license to run on Server A and B in parallel.

    Thanks, done and new server has now the owned 4-CPU running fine :)

    In the Wiki there is one odd sentence:
    "Assume you already copied over the same directory over."

    What iit should tell is that
    "Copy current serial.no from old server to the new".

    Now I do not need the rented 2-CPU for about a 3-4 weeks, is there an option to put it "on hold" and pay for it when needed again (next due date is 01/01/2014), or is it just better/easier to cancel it?

    just cancel and reorder if you do not need it now.

    Done :)

    One small wish: please add to log viewer a CSS limit for max-width to td class "log_I2", now e.g. a security log with a long message can push a page 100 times wider than it is, and push also command buttons somewhere there.

    Happy new year!
