A license file installed to your Veeam software replaces the information from the previous license of that type. A merged license file allows for increased socket or instance capacity by combining licenses from multiple Support IDs.
Please note that the merged license key will use the earliest support expiration date of all product keys.
NOTE! Licenses can be merged only when they have the same:
Version 10 of Veeam Backup & Replication is designed to accept two separate license files; one for sockets and one for instances. If you have multiple license keys for either workload, you will need to merge them together before installation.
Your License Administrator may obtain a merged license file by following the steps below.
Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 U4\U4a\U4b (Build numbers: 9.5.4.x) is designed to accept only a single license key. If you have multiple license keys or keys for different workloads (sockets and instances); they must be merged into a single license file via the Customer Portal prior to installation. The action of installing a license file will replace the previously installed license file.
