    How to activate a new BVMS 11.0 license?

    In terms of license activation process and compared to other versions of BVMS (<v11.0), the Bosch Remote Portal replaces the Bosch Software License Manager System (SLMS), starting with BVMS v11.0.

    • A new user registration is required in Bosch Remote Portal and the mandatory information for license activation is the System Info file (generated in the Configuration Client) and the Software order ID (received from the Bosch order desk by e-mail → ordering remains unchanged: still utilizes the Bosch Order Desk)
    • The remote portal will then provide a "Activation file" which includes all activation details. It needs to be uploaded to the newly installed BVMS system.
    • The activation process defines the start date of the software maintenance agreement (SMA - software assurance) period.
    • The end date is shown on the License manager of the BVMS Configuration Client after activation

    NEW: Software version-less ordering process: Ordering a BVMS Base or Expansion licenses is not software dependent anymore starting with BVMS 11.0 upwards. During license activation only "non End of Life" (EOL) versions are assigned to the license.
