Red Gate SQL Data Compare: How to Get a Serial Number and Use It to Compare and Deploy SQL Server Data

If you don't want to send your Windows user name and local machine name to Redgate when you activate your products, clear the Send information about this activation to Redgate check box.It can be useful to send information about your activation to Redgate in case you need to contact support in the future to find out where your serial keys are being used.

In the past, Redgate products could be activated using just a serial number. User based licensing now means that if you log in with your Redgate ID each time you activate your license you will never run out of activations. If you are getting the message that you have, you probably need to log in.

User account licensing (logging in when activating) and by extension the invitation function doesn't work if you are using a very old version of a product (prior to 2017) or an unsupported tool (eg. MySQL Compare) so if you have been invited to use a license in the customer portal and you try to activate it you will get the error message All of the entitlements for this serial number have already been claimed.

When you purchase a product, you can view your serial numbers at You'll need to log in with the email address and password you provided when you purchased the product. Each time a serial number is used by a new user to activate a product, one license will be claimed.

If you need to reinstall products on the same computer (e.g. after installing a new operating system), you can reactivate them using the same serial number. This doesn't affect the number of available licenses for the serial number. For information about moving a license to a different computer.

In the case of the SQL Toolbelt, where there's a mixture of licenses, you would need to purchase additional licenses of the server tools if the number of servers is larger than the number of users. We offer discounts when you buy multiple licenses. Contact us at for more information.

You see "All x of the entitlements for serial xxx-xxx-xxxxxx-xxxx have already been claimed." when trying to activate a SQL Monitor license by entering the serial key. Most often occurs because the license purchaser/owner has invited the intended recipient of the license as a User, on the Redgate Licensing portal, rather than as an Owner or Administrator. Can also occur when trying to assign spare entitlements on an existing serial key-activated license to servers on a new base monitor.

In either case, you can only encounter this error message on SQL Monitor when doing serial key activation. If you're on v11.2.3 or later, you will avoid this issue if you switch from serial keys to licenses allocated on

If you are trying to activate a perpetual license in SQL Monitor by adding the serial key, and someone has added a user to that license, this will take all the entitlements and you'll immediately see this error when you try to add the serial key in SQL Monitor. On SQL Monitor licenses from, assigning a user to a license consumes one entitlement (not all) and you can't encounter this error. See 'Missing' License Entitlements in SQL Monitor.

You will create an account, known as Redgate ID, to view your serial numbers, quotes and invoices, as well as purchase upgrades or manage your newsletter subscriptions. If you've ever saved a quote or bought a Redgate product you will already have an account created. To create an account, click 'don't have a Redgate ID' and follow the registration process.

When you purchase the product, you are sent an invoice that contains your serial number. You use the serial number to activate the product. If you cannot find your invoice, you can review your serial numbers at

If you are reinstalling products on the same computer, for example following installation of a new operating system, you can re-activate the products using the same serial number (this does not affect the number of distinct activations for the serial number). To install products on a different computer, you can deactivate the products on the old computer using the deactivation tool, and then re-activate them on the new computer.

There is often the need to compare both data and database structures from two databases either on the same server or on different servers. Most text editors have a built-in process to allow you to do a diff and identify any differences between the two files, but comparing data is not quite that easy. Using this diff process is great if you only want to compare a few files, but what if you need to scan your entire database to look for differences?

As with anything you can always create your own application to automate the comparison process. You could cursor through all of the tables read the T-SQL from one server, get the T-SQL for the same object from the other server and do a comparison. To compare the data you can write scripts that read row by row and do a comparison of the data. But why bother when there are so many products out there already.

Luckily a lot of products already exist. These products allow you to compare database objects, data, DTS scripts, servers, etc... In addition, these products are not all that expensive either. Some of the products are under $100 US and I also found a company that offers a free version, see below.

Redgate also offers a ReadyRoll Visual Studio Team Services plugin that includes VSTS build and release tasks to safely deploy these migration scripts to other databases. This way, you can keep your database deployments consistent across multiple instances. You can set up VSTS to automate these database deployments to shift your database development further left and learn about potential problems sooner.

Unless there is further evidence such as a serial number by which the missile can be traced back and the Russians and Ukrainians can demonstrate reliably who had the missile at the time it is unlikely that direct attribution will ever be possible for what is and remains the most serious war crime this century in the European area.

interesting is that she claims her front company would have been closed soon after it was revealed by the press that the phone numbers could lead to drone kills. And she says that CIA agents are not allowed anymore to interrogate refugees personally on behalf of the BND.
