Installing License

To install a license, use the following command:

veeamconfig license install --path <path> --workstation


veeamconfig license install --path <path> --server


  • <path> — path to the license key file in the local file system of your computer.
  • workstation or server — edition in which Veeam Agent will operate. To learn more about editions, see Product Editions.

Veeam Agent for Mac will install the license and display information about the license. You can also view this information later at any time. To learn more, see Viewing License Information.

For example:

user@wrk01:~$ veeamconfig license install --path /Users/user/Desktop/veeam.lic --server
License was installed successfully.
