Install Veeam Agent for Windows in free mode but license managend by...

Post by holladiewaldfee »

Hello,
i installed Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows 4.0.1.2169 on an machine and when veeam asked me "This installation operates in free mode. Would you like to install a licence file?" i clicked on "No".
But it doesn't matter what i choose.

I can't backup, because the licence are expired. But i choosed the free mode?!?

I tryed several times to deinstall and install Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows, but it's always the same situation.

If i click on "About" i see the following message under Version:

Licencse and edition are managend by xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

But this server did not exist any more.

How can i use Veeam Agent for Windows in the free version on this machine?

Hello,

that's the reason. The agent still believes that it needs to get licenses from the Veeam Backup & Replication server.

I assume that you still have backup jobs pointing to the VBR server.

I just tried it out. Once I removed the job(s) pointing to the VBR server, the agent automatically switched into free edition mode.

Best regards,
Hannes
