Merging Licenses

Merging licenses is an option for customers who have a Perpetual Socket license. If you have a Perpetual Socket license, and want to also protect, for example, your cloud or physical workloads, or work with Veeam plug-ins, you can obtain an instance license and merge it with the socket license.

Under the merged license, the following workloads are processed per socket:

  • VMs
  • Veeam Plug-ins if the application servers are added to Veeam Backup & Replication
  • Veeam Agents if the machines are added to Veeam Backup & Replication.

Other workloads are processed per instance.

Support Terms in Merged Licenses

If the licenses that you want to merge have different support expiration date, the merged license will take the support that expires first.

Merging Licenses

Before merging licenses, check the following prerequisites:

  1. The license type and package allow merging.
  2. The company names are identical in both licenses. Company name check is case sensitive.

To merge licenses, install a new license over the already installed license. For more information, see Installing License.

Note that if the license types do not allow merging, the newly installed license will replace the previous license.
