Remove / add license to Veeam Backup and Replication from command line?

Post by jackmusick » Feb 27, 2019 6:46 pm

I'm following this article:

https://www.veeam.com/kb2235

I've tried running these commands with no luck:

* Veeam.Backup.Manager.exe -removelicense all
* Veeam.Backup.Manager.exe -removelicense vrb

When I open the console, my license is still there.

Currently, my rental licenses disappeared from my account, so I have a separate request open for that. My goal is to silently remove all of my licenses (switching them to the community edition) and add my new licenses when I get them. I'm under 10 VMs everywhere so it won't be a problem while I wait on my new licenses.

Any ideas?

Do you have EM deployed on the same machine?

Also, can't you just remove this registry key to switch to Community Edition?

Thanks!

Due to a bug, those commands will not work if you have Enterprise Manager installed on your backup server.
If this is your case, then nuking the entire registry key will be the only available option until we fix that bug.
