I am a bit confused and would like someone to shed me some light. I have upgraded the VeeamONE Monitor from v7 to v8 with the new trial key and found that it limits the monitor to only 32 sockets when a total of 38 sockets have been detected. I know the trial key will expire within 30 days, and I assume that once it expires it will turn itself into the Free Edition. At that time, do I still need a Free Edition licence or it will continue to run as Free Edition without another licence from that point onward?
I would like to start using the Free Edition straightway and be able to monitor servers with all 38 sockets immediately. Is there any way I can force the licence to expire or replace the trial with the free licence key? I checked the Manage Licence page (http://www.veeam.com/manage_licenses.html
), and all it has is the download of trial key. I also tried to download a copy of Free Edition, but it seems to be the same file which I downloaded for install with the trial key.
According to Veeam, if I install VeeamONE without a licence key, it will default to the free version and work for 90 days. It then requests that you install a license file to be able to continue using Veeam ONE. So it seems to me that I can't simply install without a licence.
Does anyone know what I can do from here?
