A Lyve Management Portal username and password are required to authorize computers to access devices connected to the PCIe Adapter.
Account manager—You created a Lyve Management Portal username and password when you set up your Lyve account at lyve.seagate.com.
Product admin or product user—You were identified as a product user for a project created in the Lyve Management Portal. An email was sent to you from the Lyve team that included a link for resetting your password.
To unlock and access Lyve devices connected to your computer, you must enter your username and password in the Lyve Client app. You can also use it to manage Lyve projects and data operations. Install Lyve Client on any computer intended to connect to Lyve Mobile PCIe Adapter. Download the Lyve Client installer for Windows® or macOS® at www.seagate.com/support/lyve-client.
An internet connection is required when authorizing a host computer.
Lyve Client authorizes the host computer to unlock and access Lyve devices and manage projects on the Lyve Management Portal.
The host computer remains authorized for up to 30 days, during which you can unlock and access connected devices even without an internet connection. After 30 days, you’ll need to open Lyve Client on the computer and re-enter your credentials.
