EA Activation Counts and VPS Upgrade (on Resources not Hardware)

Cazz223  

Hi 

My current VPS resources is getting less capable of coping with my trading activities, this prompts me to consider upgrading my VPS plan.

VPS provider said the upgrade VPS in resources, says, more ram and faster CPU, would not change the MAC address nor the ip, hence should not consume the number of EA's activation, as activation counts are tied with the MAC address.

Is this statement correct?


Looking forward to kind advice.

Thank you

Personal and unofficial opinion.

Your statement is correct, you should not lose any activation.

However, as we do not really know if the activation is only linked to the IP/MAC, I advise you to ask this question at the service desk to get an official and 100% reliable answer.

That way if, after an official response, you lose any activation, you can always complain.

A change in a CPU speed (on a VPS) is equivalent to a change in CPU, which in turn affects the license signature, causing the activation to be lost.

I tend to agree with you, Fernando.

I suppose beefing up the ram should be ok, as it's only about allocating more memory resources to a vps.

Changing the CPU could well be a totally different game.
