  • You do not need to run the Failover License Server on the same machine as the IIS 8.5, IIS 8 or IIS 7.5 server and the RTR FrontPage Server Extensions.
  • Host ID of the primary RTR FPSE License Server - used to obtain your original license
  • Host ID of the Failover License Server - use the same process on the Failover License Server that you used to obtain your primary Host ID
