    Removing License

    To remove a license installed on the backup appliance if you no longer need it:

    1. On the License Info tab, click Remove License.
    2. In the Remove License window, click Yes to confirm that you want to remove the license.

    Installing and Removing License 

    After you remove the license, Veeam Backup for AWS will automatically switch back to the Free edition. In this case, according to the FIFO (first-in first-out) queue, only the first 10 instances registered in the configuration database will remain protected. You can revoke license units from these instances as described in section Revoking License Units.
