Recovery Manager for AD 10.0 - Quick Start Guide

Licensing

Licensing

The Recovery Manager for Active Directory license key file specifies the licensed number of user accounts in the Active Directory domains protected with the product. If the actual number of user accounts exceeds the licensed number, Recovery Manager for Active Directory does not stop functioning but displays a warning message each time you back up data. In this case, you need to purchase and install a new license key file allowing you to back up a greater number of user accounts or revoke licenses from the domains whose backups you no longer need.

To view information about and manage the installed license key file, you can use the License tab in the About dialog box: in the Recovery Manager Console, right-click the Recovery Manager for Active Directory console tree root, and then click About.

The License tab has the following elements:

  • Licenses purchased. Displays the maximum allowed number of user accounts you can back up using the installed license file.
  • Licenses allocated. Displays the number of user accounts backed up with the installed license file. If this number exceeds the number of purchased licenses, Recovery Manager for Active Directory returns a warning message each time you back up data.
  • License usage. Displays the number of user accounts backed up in each domain.
  • Revoke. Revokes licenses from the domain selected in the License usage list. Be careful, as revoking licenses from a domain deletes all backups Recovery Manager for Active Directory created for that domain.
  • Install License File. Allows you to install a new license key file purchased from Quest.

Revoking licenses

When the actual number of user accounts exceeds the licensed number, Recovery Manager for Active Directory returns a warning message each time you back up data.
