License Expiration

To ensure a smooth license update and provide sufficient time to install a new license file, Veeam Backup & Replication offers a grace period.

The duration of the grace period depends on the type of license. For more information, see Types of Licenses.

During the grace period, you can perform all types of data protection and disaster recovery operations. However, Veeam Backup & Replication will inform you about the license expiration when you open the Veeam Backup & Replication console. The license status in the License Information window will appear as Expired (<number> days of grace period remaining).

You must update your license before the end of the grace period. If you do not update the license, the following measures will be taken:

  • [For evaluation and NFR licenses] Veeam Backup & Replication will switch to the Community edition. For more information, see Community Edition and Full Version.
  • [For paid licenses] Functionality available in the Enterprise and Enterprise Plus editions of Veeam Backup & Replication will not be available. Workloads will not be processed by existing jobs (jobs will fail with the Error status). However, you will be able to restore machine data from existing backups.
