    Server rebuilt... restored from backup.. need new lic???

      Hi All,


      This is an interesting one, scenario as follows:


      Build a server from scratch using Provisioning manager.


      Installed 6.2.1 agent and license.


      Backed up server with NTBACKUP including system state and associated program directories.


      Rebuilt server using provisiong manager but don't install BL agent.


      Performed system state restore (including program

        's) from previously taken backup which includes the BL agent.


        Did an AGENTINFO of this machine from a remote host and for some reason the HOST ID has changed thus making the agent appear unlicensed.


        I thought restoring from system state was like ghosting a server and putting it back into action as it was previous.


        Can anyone suggest what is happening?
