Enabling Automated License Key Update

In this article

    Automated License Key Update (ALK) is a simple check box within Veeam installations that connects to the Veeam Licensing Server. By enabling ALK, any updates made to licenses in VCSP Pulse (contract extension, increase in license size and so on) will automatically be reflected in the Veeam installation.


    Usage reporting communicates with internet-based Veeam license servers. It does not replace the need to report your paid monthly usage in VCSP Pulse.

    If you do not have Automated License Key Update enabled, or if you are near the expiration date of your rental agreement, a warning message will appear in your environment.
