Installing a trial version of Backup Exec agents and options

You can install a trial version of most Backup Exec agents and options at any time after the core product is licensed. Each agent and each option has its own independent trial period. When a trial period is about to expire, Backup Exec warns you with an alert.

You can view a list of agents and options that are available for a trial period. You can also view the amount of time that is left in each individual trial period.

See Viewing license information.
