Request Project Based Licensing

WARNING: Once a license is assigned to a database, it is non-transferable.  So before licensing any Offline or Production databases, we highly recommend requesting a DEMO license to test accessing the Exchange databases to ensure the desired messaging information can be accessed.

STOP AND READ THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION: DigiScope identifies databases by markers that are unique to each database and will not change.  One of these markers is the database's Globally Unique Identifier (GUID).

However there is one case where the database's GUID will change: if you mount the database within an Exchange Recovery Storage Group (RSG) or as an Exchange Recovery Database (RDB).  When you do this, Exchange assigns a new GUID to the recovered database to ensure it does not clash with a live production copy of the same database.  When this change occurs, DigiScope sees the database as a new database and will require an additional license for it.

You may use RSGs or RDBs within Exchange to recover databases to disk, but, to avoid this issue, be sure to configure the recovery job not to mount the database upon completion.  Only use DigiScope to mount the recovered database.

NOTE: If you are running DigiScope® on a system with internet access, it is recommended that you use the Online Licensing Service to request your license automatically. Please refer to Request Full Product License via Automated Online License Service 24x7x365 for help on automatically requesting a Full Product license.

NOTE:  In order to request a license for specific databases, you must have first obtained a DEMO license and added those databases to the DigiScope® Offline or Production tree.  For information on how to add databases, please see:
