Removing Backup Exec System Recovery licenses from Backup Exec System Recovery Manager

Exporting Backup Exec System Recovery licenses gives you the ability to reassign the licenses to other computers.

When you remove or export a license, the following occurs:

  • All used licenses are removed from the computers that use the file.

  • Backup Exec System Recovery becomes a 60-day trial version on affected computers.

  • The license file information is removed from the Backup Exec System Recovery Manager database.

  • The license file information is removed from the list view in the Licensing dialog box of the console.

  • You can choose to save the file to a new location.

To use the licenses again, you can re-add the license key (or re-import the .slf file) and assign the licenses to computers as usual.
