We have test and demo old UTM SG230 appliance setuped. Problem is that by finsing the initial wizard to register the device for a valid license, the build in serial number was used.Before we setup a vm appliance without any problems. Now we want to change. I need to change the XG Home free license to current SG230 appliance. Resinstall could not solve the problem because the registration was already done after config restore via internet with same limited 4 weeks license.Is it possible to change my serial number or delete my registered device and I can start reinstall again and try to register with a free serial number?
Current: S210353312EC1AF is is only valid until 12th julTarget: C01001VQXXXXXX sholud be used
You need to reinstall the SG Appliance as a Software appliance. Check the Community for How-Tos.
As XG Home is limited to Software Appliances, it is not possible to apply on any Hardware Appliance a Home License.
In reply to LuCar Toni:
What does this mean? Can I use my SG230 Appliance then or it is not possible?
In reply to Lukas Tripp:
yes, you can use your SG230 but you will need to format the hard disk and use the software ISO not the appliance ISO.
In reply to rfcat_vk:
i tried to use the software iso, but it says "physical device" detected. SO you mean format disk before and the install the software iso?
yes you need to delete the Sophos details in the boot sector which provide the hardware details.
Yes, delete all partitions from the disk, restart setup and enjoy...
