|Overview of Licensing and and Product Activation|
Bamboo Solutions completed its migration of more than 60 Bamboo products to SharePoint 2013 I the fall of 2013. A few years earlier, we completed the migration of many of those same products from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010.
Bamboo License Keys for previous versions of SharePoint are not valid for newer versions. If eligible, you can retrieve license keys for newer SharePoint versions through the My Bamboo area of the Bamboo Solutions web site.
When you activate product license keys for a newer SharePoint version, the keys for the older version become invalid after 60 days.
Bamboo Policy for Migrating License Keys
To receive a free SharePoint 2010 or SharePoint 2013 license key, you must have a valid Premium Support Contract for the product you are migrating to SharePoint 2010 or SharePoint 2013.
We support a 1:1 exchange of license keys. If your SharePoint 2007 farm had two WFE servers and your SharePoint 2010 farm has four WFE servers, you will need to purchase two additional SharePoint 2010 license keys. The same requirement holds for SharePoint 2010 farms you are migrating to SharePoint 2013.
How to get your new license keys
If you have a valid Premium Support Contract for the product you intend to migrate, follow these steps:
|1.||Login to My Bamboo with the Bamboo account that made the original SharePoint 2007 Bamboo license key purchase or an account that can see the purchases.
|2.||Click My Orders Product Licenses under the sectionlocated at the bottom of the page.
On the Product Licenses tab of the My Orders page, each product purchased is listed. If an update is available, a Request SP 2013 License button is displayed in the Update Keys column.
An order will be created automatically and you will be redirected to the order completion page, where you can retrieve the installation package. You will also receive an e-mail that provides you the link to the download package and your SharePoint 2013 License Keys.
