Step 4. Provide License
At the License step of the wizard, click one of the two options to provide a license:
- Sign-in with Veeam — open the Veeam account Sign in screen to log in with your Veeam account credentials if you already have a registered license on your account.
- Browse licence file locally — specify the local path to the license file.
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. Note that for Evaluation and NFR licenses automatic license update must be enabled.
If you continue without providing a license, the Community Edition is installed. In this case the product will work in the limited functionality mode. To learn what functionality you are missing with the Community Edition mode, click the Learn more about product editions link at the bottom right corner of the wizard.
