  • With a valid support contract you are eligible for a free upgrade.

    I would suggest you to contact Symantec Licensing Team to help you out with the licensing issue.

    For contact info refer to

  • You can install and useBackup exec in Evalaution mode for 60 days.

    You may refer the following link to 

    For product version UPGRADE license keys:

    Incase you have any issue Contact Licensing team as suggested by AmolB

  • Hi Amol/ Rahul


    I already tried to mail and also get new license but not working and video link are not opening.

    well i already allign Technical support for this purpose.



  • Kashan, Could you elaborate what is not working?

  • Instead of support which does not handle licensing matters, you should call the Symantec Licencing department. Call your local Symantec support number and select option 2

    this link is not working 

    and the new updated license which was share by symantec team through mail was not working and show error "invalid license."

    also i already allign support team of symantec so hopefully both issue will be resolve by today
