Installing Your License Files
When you run the Backup Exec installation wizard, you are prompted to enter licensing information. You can import a Symantec License File, type serial numbers, or install a 60-day trial version. If you do not enter licensing information within 60 days of installation, then the product will stop working. You can activate the product at any time after the initial 60 days have elapsed.

To import a Symantec License File (SLF):
1.     From the “Add Licenses” screen, click Import From File.
2.     Browse to the location where to you saved the .slf file.
3.     Select the SLF.
4.     Click Open.
 
To enter serial numbers (requires an Internet connection):
Note: 
This activity uses port 443. In order to successfully register Serial Numbers over the web make sure inbound connections on port 443 are not blocked.
1.     From the “Add Licenses” screen, enter the serial numbers that are listed on your license certificate.
2.     Click Add.
3.     Click Next to submit the serial numbers for verification
