This issue has been solved. See solution.


I have a windows 2003 server with a licensed copy of Backup Exec 2010 R3 installed but i want to use a new tape library with 2 drives in it.  Is it possible to get the tril version of the Library expansion option working without re-installing the whole server?

Hello KGill,

    There is no option to just Trial the Library Expansion Option (LEO) when the complete BE is licensed.



Hope this piece of Information Helps you... and if it does then mark this response as Solution....!!!

Just thought of another question, if i remove the license key for the server will the LEO work in trial mode then?

I believe that the library will be functional without the LEO license, but you will get frequent alerts reminding you to obtain the license.

If you find this is a solution for the thread, please mark it as such.
