Retrospect Virtual Licensing

Virtualization



Overview

Retrospect Virtual is licensed differently from Retrospect Backup. Instead of individual license keys for each component, Retrospect Virtual has a single set license credentials–a name and a key–that enables specific components.

The licensing page for Retrospect Virtual is accessible from the home screen under "License". There are two components to a Retrospect Virtual license:

  • Licensee Name

  • License Key

Retrospect Virtual Trial License

Retrospect Virtual includes a 60-day trial. You do not need to license the software to try it.

Retrospect Virtual NFR License

Certified partners can request an not-for-resale (NFR) license for Retrospect Virtual. This license will run for a year, although individual trial users created as part of the NFR are still restricted to 60 days.

Retrospect Virtual Purchased License

When you purchase a full version of Retrospect Virtual, your fulfillment email will include the license components: a name and a key. Enter these into the Retrospect Virtual License Manager and click "Update License".

If you have already been using a trial, clicking "Update License" will reconfigure your software to use the new license.
