Has anyone ever done an upgrade or migration from Advanced to Standard edition? I am going to be moving a driver set from servers running IDM 4.0.1 Advanced version to 4.0.2 Standard. My plan is to maintain the the driver associations. The process should be to remove the current activations from the driver set, add the standard servers, and migrate the drivers one at a time. Once the drivers are migrated over, I will remove the Advanced 4.0.1 servers, and then add the new activations. Does anyone see any potential issues, or have any advice on the migration? I appreciate any help.
I have not done it, but that sounds like a fine way to do it assuming you do not want to just upgrade the existing servers. There was a problem going from AE to SE when the concept was first introduced because of some poor overloading of a pseudo-server attribute, but that should be resolved by now, and where you are changing from one server to another it really should not matter with the order you have specified.
-- Good luck.

Success! I removed the Advanced Engine Activation Added the new Standard 4.0.2 servers to the driverset Copied the drivers to the new servers, and configured them to run on the new servers Removed the old servers from the driverset Added Activation for the Standard Edition

As a heads up, realize that the way the license audit tool is not well explained.
Do an LDAP query from the base of your tree for the filter: (objectClass=nrfIdentity)
All those objects can be potentially counted in an audit as Advanced users, possibly regardless of what license you claim is in the tree.
Even if you had removed all the nrfResource, nrfMemberOf, nrf* and srvprv* attributes from your objects, the presence of the object class can trigger the charging of a RBPM license, which in these days is an Advanced user license.
