    1. Switch to the Configuration page.
    2. Navigate to Licensing > License Info.
    3. Click Install License.
    4. In the Install License window, click Browse to browse to a license file, and then click Install.

    Installing License

    Important

    If your backup appliance is connected to a standalone Veeam Backup & Replication server, you can manage the license only using the Veeam Backup & Replication console. For more information, see Integration with Veeam Backup & Replication Guide.

    Removing License

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

    1. Switch to the Configuration page.
    2. Navigate to Licensing > License Info.
    3. Click Remove License.

    Removing License

    After you remove a license, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure 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.

    Important

    If your backup appliance is connected to a standalone Veeam Backup & Replication server and has the BYOL edition installed, you can remove the license and switch to the Free edition only using the Veeam Backup & Replication console.
