    Is it possible to upgrade an install of of the free 8SC edition to the Pro 8SC on an existing Google Cloud installation without completing reinstalling?

    Thank you. Any issues with FQDN transferring over?

    There are 2 ways to upgrade a license from free to pro in V15.
    the first and easiest is to upgrade the existing license key to Pro. After the upgrade is completed then you just have to click Edit on the license tab and ok so that the license can re-activate to the pro version.
    The second way is applying a new different license key. To do that you need to create a backup without including license and FQDN information.
    Save your backup to a safe location. Then you need to un-install, release the free key from the FQDN and re-install using the new license with the same FQDN.
    The reason for this is that the FQDN binds to the license key only during the installation.
