Do I need to re-activate?

Hi I have a total newbie question. We just renewed our licenses and I got an email with keys and instructions on how to activate Backup Exec. However the instructions seem to be for a fresh install, so I am confused. If my Backup Exec server is already set up and running, do I need to re-activate it? I just wanted to check so it doesn't decide to expire or go kaput on me in the middle of the night.

You can just simply re add the licenses by going to 'Installation and Licensing' and them 'Install options and licenses'

You do not need to re-enter your licence or re-activate your BE licences.  BE licences are perpetual.  If you have a maintenance licence, you would have to enter this as the old maintenance licence would have either expired or going to.
