My Veeam Backup & Replication license is soon to expire. I want to change from the paid version to the free version (Veeam Backup & Replication Community Edition). Veeam B&R CE can protect up to 10 VMs for free.
I uninstalled Backup & Replication and installed the latest version. The license has not changed. How do I remove the old license?
- Delete the following key with regedit.exe
HLKM\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication\License\Lic1 (REG_BINARY)
If this doesn’t help please try the following command:
For versions prior 9.5 Update 4:
Veeam.Backup.Manager.exe -removelicense [all, vbr, vaw, val]
For version 9.5 Update 4 and newer:
I hope this solution helps you.
