Getting started with the Rapid Recovery License Portal

The purpose of the Rapid Recovery License Portal is to allow you to manage the software licenses that are deployed by you and your customers as well as track any appliance licenses that you have installed. For example, your customers are represented as groups in the License Portal, and each group has its own set of users and properties. As your groups or customers deploy Rapid Recovery software, you can track the activity for monitoring and billing purposes.

Understanding license numbers and license keys

A software license key is required to download the Rapid Recovery Core and Rapid Recovery Agent software and to configure and protect machines. Refer to the following topics for information about the general process of getting your license key and downloading software.

When you purchase software or appliances, you will receive a license number via email for your sales order. This license number is associated with any of your software license keys for the Rapid Recovery Core and Agent software.

If you do not receive this email at the email address that you are expecting, please check with your internal purchase ordering contact or contact your Quest sales representative for further help in verifying the sales order end user email information or any other additional help in acquiring your license key. Software customers who do not have a license number or who are having difficulties activating their licenses should contact Quest to enable the license at: If possible, please have your order number and end user email information that was provided on the sales order available prior to contacting Quest for licensing assistance to ensure faster service.

To download Rapid Recovery software, you can visit the Rapid Recovery License Portal at the website URL that was provided to you (for example in the email you received upon purchase), and register for a License Portal account. Upon successful registration, you can log on to the License Portal to activate and download software.

When you download software from the License Portal, a software license key is generated and included in the downloaded installer. A different license key is generated when the type of license changes (for example, if you are upgrading from a trial to perpetual license). Upon purchase of software, you may also receive your software license key as a file attachment in an email from Quest, which will be sent to the end user email address associated with your contract. You can view license keys within the License Portal.

If you have purchased an appliance, your appliance is configured with a 30–day temporary software license key. To obtain a permanent software license key, you must log on to the License Portal at the website URL provided to you. You need to enter your license number to obtain a permanent software license key, and then go to your Core UI to enter the license key in the software.
