If your system name has changed, you may either return it to its original or register BackupEDGE with the new system name. This is done by running the command /usr/lib/edge/bin/edge.activate -r .

Then reprint the registration form after a new registration key is generated.

Once this form is printed, either fax the form to our registrations desk or email it to
