I just activated Sled 11 sp3 a few days ago.

No good deed goes unpunished. The hard drive failed during imaging. My Question is how does one - reactivate after installing on a new drive.

Can you move the activation using the Novell customer center or do I have to contact Novell.

I do have a partial copy of the system file and a non activated image. Is there a chance I could just move the registration files. I guess I would need to know what files to copy that hold the registration information - if I do have them.


Thanks in advance

Mike

Hi
Log into the Novell Customer Center and check under the system details
for the registration details, then you can delete the system from NCC,
re-install and re-register.
