Rental License

Paid, fully-functional license that expires at the end of the contract which is the last day of the month and normally 1 month from the contract start date. Such a license type is distributed only to service providers.

Understanding Trial State

A trial state is given to each user account that is being backed up for the first time and lasts until the first day of the following month. During this period your rental license remains unconsumed by such accounts.

For example, you have three user accounts A, B and C to be backed up and the first session of a backup job is scheduled on January 13, 2019. In such a scenario, after the backup session, all three user accounts (i.e. A, B and C) will be given a trial state until February 1, 2019. On February 1, 2019, a trial state for each of these accounts will be automatically reset. After the trial state is reset, upon the next backup job session all three user accounts (A, B and C) start consuming a rental license immediately.

You can avoid consuming a rental license by trial accounts you no longer want to process. For example, you may not want to continue backing up the account B from the example above. For that, you can simply remove it from the backup job processing list, as described in Creating Backup Job. Consider doing so before the backup job session that may be scheduled after the trial state is already reset.

License Expired

The grace period of 2 month granted after the expiration of license for purpose of renewal. During this period, the program functionality is not limited by any means. After this period, processing of all user accounts in all organizations will be stopped; scheduled jobs will be terminated with failure. In both cases, a notification message will be shown to notify you that your license is either about to be expired or has expired.

The restore abilities will continue to function regardless of whether your license has expired or not.

License Exceeded

Additional process of no more than 20 user accounts or 20% of the license count (whichever is greater) granted if your rental license has exceeded its limit by up to 20 user accounts or up to 20% of the license count.

If exceeded by more than 20 user accounts or more than 20% of the license count (whichever is greater), you can process these 20 (or 20%) extra user accounts according to the FIFO queue logic (that is, "first in - first out"); no more additional accounts are allowed.

The grace period in this case equals 2 months. After this period, processing of excessive user accounts (in FIFO queue) will be stopped; no more extra accounts will be queued for processing. The corresponding messages will be displayed in the UI and written to the log.

The restore abilities will continue to function regardless of the grace period state.
