Installing product license keys

The evaluation license for the NetVault Backup products is valid for 30 days. To continue using the product after the expiry of the evaluation period, you must install the permanent license keys for the server and installed plug-ins.

The server is licensed based on the NetVault Backup Server Edition and the additional options that you have purchased. The clients require a permanent license key only if a licensed plug-in is installed on the machine. For more information about obtaining the license keys, see the Quest NetVault Backup Installation Guide.

You can use the configuration wizard to install the license keys. You can also install the license keys from the Manage Clients or Change Settings page. These procedures are described in the following sections:
