Step 4. Provide License File

At the Provide License step of the wizard, specify what license you want to install for Veeam Backup & Replication. For more information, see Licensing.

If a valid license is already installed on the machine, the setup wizard will inform you about it. In this case, you can skip the Provide License step and move to the next step of the wizard.

If you do not install a license, the product will operate in the Veeam Backup & Replication Community (free) Edition. For more information, see Veeam Backup & Replication Community Edition.

To install a license:

  1. Next to the License file field, click Browse.
  2. Select a valid license file for Veeam Backup & Replication.
  3. To install new licenses automatically when you renew or expand your contract, select the Update license automatically check box. If you enable the automatic license update, and therefore enable usage reporting, you will double the number of workloads by which you can exceed your installed license. For more information, see Exceeding License Limit.
