You can instruct Veeam Backup & Replication to automatically update the license installed on the backup server or Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager server. With the automatic update option enabled, Veeam Backup & Replication proactively communicates with the Veeam licensing server to obtain and install a new license before the current license expires. Automatic license update removes the need to download and install the license manually each time when you purchase the license extension.
Requirements and Limitations for Automatic License Update
1.Automatic license update is available in all editions of Veeam Backup & Replication operating in the full functionality mode.
2.Only licenses with Support ID can be updated automatically.
3.Automatic license update is not supported for licenses with merged Support IDs.
4.If you manage backup servers with Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager, all license management tasks are performed via Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager. Automatic update settings in Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager override automatic update settings configured in Veeam Backup & Replication. For example, if the automatic update option is enabled in Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager but disabled in Veeam Backup & Replication, automatic update will be performed anyway. For more information, see Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager User Guide.
