Reinstall DTP change MachineID

reactancexl Posts: 160

I accidently deleted the "Admin" account from the administration portion of DTP. If I reinstall DTP will the MachineID change? ALso is there a workaround where I can add the user back in. ? This is the error I am getting.

    Reinstalling Uninstalling and Reinstalling does not change the Machine ID.

    I've upgraded DTP server from 5.3.4 -> 2020.2 by 2 iterations:
    1) 5.3.4 - > 5.4.3 - MachineID isn't changed
    2) 5.4.3 -> 2020.2 - MachineID is changed

    Additionally I've checked local MachineID for 2020.1 (thru client distibutive) - MachineID didn't change.

    So, only upgrade to 2020.2 will change MachineID.

    Please see release notes for 2020.2 release which mentions changes to machineID.

    Upgrade Notes
    Upgrading to 2020.2 on Windows changes the machine ID for the host running DTP. As a result, licenses stored and served from the License Server module become invalid. If DTP contains invalid licenses after upgrading, contact your Parasoft representative to obtain new licenses.
