I have a SMS version R80.10 running on a Smart-1 410 appliance (and a pair of R80.10 gateways running on 5600 appliances). I want to do an advanced upgrade with migration and I will do it for my SMS first. Since this is quite complex two steps process, doing first R80.10 - -> R80.40 with old ./migrate export tools and R80.40 - -> R81 with new ./migrate_server tools as a second step, I want to do it offline, to migrate my database to R81 virtual machine, assure that I can load my existing policy in R81 version before deploying it in my production network. So, in other words, my plan is to do all the migration offline, check if my policy is loading in R81 version and prepare ./migrate_server export from R81. If everything runs OK, I will reinstall Smart-1 410 from the scratch with R81 ISOMorphic tool and do ./migrate_server import owith already prepared database.
R80.10 - - > R80.40 went fine, but when I try export R80.40 - -> R81 I run into some troubles with licences. After the ./migrate_server import on a brand new R81 virtual machine, I do not see my licences, even trial 15-day licences are not valid any more. It seems that old migrate export tool always contains the license of the time of the DB export from SMS, but it is not the case for the new ./migrate_server tool. I tried it several times, and each time I got this message trying to connect with SmartConsole (see attached picture).
Is there some possibility to also transfer the licences with the new ./migrate_server tools as it was the case with old ./migrate tools?
