Update 04/04/2013: I have just checked this for myself and due to all the changes going on within LogMeIn to monetise the service it is no longer possible to use this tutorial. Sorry but you will have to use the official LogMeIn methods documented here.
I have been a user of LogMeIn product for over 6 years, I started using just LogMeInFree to access my computer across the internet, I then rolled this out to a small non-profit I did volunteer work for and once I had my first real IT job I used it there. In my infinite wisdom I installed all of these clients on my own personal LogMeIn account, while this had benefits because I only needed one license for LogMeIn Central(Central allows you to manage your computers, share access with other users and much more…) and Ignition(small desktop application that allows you to quickly access any of your LogMeIn computers, essential for remote support), However the time has come that I’m moving on and need to transfer the ownership of these computers to someone else.
It’s worth pointing out that you can only transfer the actual computer and not the accompanying subscription for LogMeInPro/Central or Ignition. There are three methods that can be used to move a LogMeIn computer from one account to another, two require you physically accessing each machine and changing settings. These are documented by LogMeIn at the following address:
The third method was provided to me by LogMeIn Business Development. When speaking to the nice man I was put through to when calling LogMeIn support this method was never mentioned or suggested.
My current situation is:
Account No 1 – Personal LogMeIn account used for both Family & Friends PCs as well as PCs that belonged to a business.
Account No 2 – New Account created for the business that owns the PCs mentioned above.
To transfer the computers, you need to:
- Log into LogMeIn with Account No 2 and go to https://secure.logmein.com/products/central/ and take out the trial of LogMeIn Central(*See note at bottom)
- Add Account No 1 as a secondary user to Account No 2 as per http://youtu.be/r4vWl8O1-5Q
- Log in and accept the Invitation with Account No 1
- Browse to your computers, go to Properties for each computer, then Subscriptions
- When changing the subscription you should see the LogMeIn Free subscription from Account No 2, select this
- That computer will now be transferred to Account No 2.
Obviously if you have a lot of clients this can be a time-consuming job, but for me with about 60 computers it was easy and simple, especially in comparison to physically going to each machine.
*If you’ve already had your LogMeIn Central trial you can either create a new account and get a new trial or if you don’t want to do that, then you can call LogMeIn sales and plead nicely for another trial(I have done this and it works, they are very useful)
