I just wiped my unimus test server and reinstalled from scratch - I was a bit surprised to see that the five devices I had added previously are already in my device list!

Are they synced to my license key somehow?

Many thanks!

Hello,

Exactly, a list of Zones and devices is synced with our licensing server. I would also like to mention Tomas' post regarding what data is being collected by Unimus

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1232

This sync is useful for two main uses:
- in case of some hardware failure or FS corruption on the system which could damage the DB data integrity, this can help if a new instance is deployed and one doesn't want to start totally from the scratch
- HA - it is very easy to create a high-availability scheme for Unimus server as it is possible to have multiple active Unimus servers using the same license key active at the same time.

Thanks, I had a brief moment where I wondered if I'd reverted something without noticing but that makes perfect sense.
