With Backup Exec 21 experience the ease in license deployment


Backup Exec 21 introducing secure download and ease of license update by synchronizing with licensing portal.

How it is beneficial to me?security_camera.jpg

License download is now more SECURE:  

         Benefit: This ensures security and compliance when dealing with your Entitlement IDs.

  • In an upgrade scenario, Backup Exec installer will automatically try to download the new licenses after authenticating with VEMS.

          Benefit: Removes the user intervention of having to add the Entitlement IDs manually or import .slf files during upgrade.

Updating licenses is now made EASY:

  • Backup Exec will periodically auto sync renewed maintenance contracts from VEMS (if and when available).

          Benefit: This will remove the manual intervention that is currently required to update the licenses.  

There are no additional requirements or pre-requisites from within the product.

Also if users would like Backup Exec to download the license (.slf) files for given set of Entitlement IDs, then the user will need to provide the Veritas Entitlement Management System (VEMS) user account.

This account should have the permissions to download the license files for the given set of Entitlement IDs.
