What should be kept in mind when using a NET SOFTLOCK?


You have to activate the NET-SOFTLOCK (Net-SL) once on a PC, server or a virtual server. Please use the attached instructions (Installation-NET-Softlock).


By activating the NET-SL, it is connected to the PC by mainboard ID and hard disk ID. For virtual machines, the SL is connected by using the CPU characteristic and the virtual MAC address.




If a NET-SL is activated on a PC, no formatting of the hard disk or reinstalling of the operating system should be carried out. No change of mainboard or hard disk is allowed either.


If a NET-SL is installed on a virtual machine, please make sure that the virtual MAC address is static and that the CPU characteristic cannot be changed. Virtual machines must not be copied (cloned) or moved.


If you have to change anything on this PC or the virtual machine, transfer the NET-SL to another PC or virtual machine in advance by using the attached instructions (REHOSTING-EN).
