DiskSense hardware system includes an internal HASP USB dongle. It contains unique activation and subscription information.
Having more than one DiskSense system in your network may result in HASP-related conflicts. These conflicts usually manifest as “Too many connections” or “Cannot located DiskSense unit” errors. The issue is caused by behavior of the HASP discovery system which by default picks a random HASP dongle on the network. In other words, one Atola Insight Forensic instance may establish the connection with one DiskSense system, however it will “use” the HASP dongle of another (random) system available on the network.
