    There is no license assigned to Acronis Agent (solution 1), a trial license has expired (solution 2), or the agent cannot verify the license on Acronis License Server (solution 3).

    3. Select a license available on the License Server of add a license:

    On the Management Server:

    1. Right-click on the Agent machine and select Change license:
    2. Specify a license.


    Solution 2: moving to full version

    Switching from trial to full version is done in the same way as assigning a license. Here are step-by-step instructions:


    Solution 3: reassigning the license

    1. On the Agent machine, go to Help -> About and note the license assigned to the machine;
    2. On Acronis Management Server, go to Licenses section on the Navigation pane (Full list must be selected):

    3. Select the license assigned to the problem machine and press Revoke license:

    4. Restart Acronis services on the machine with Acronis Agent:
      • Go to Start -> Run -> services.msc;
      •  Right-click on Acronis Managed Machine Service, and click Restart;
    5. On the machine with Acronis Agent, go to Help -> Change License and check if license is assigned. If license is not assigned, press Change and assign a license from the list of available licenses to the machine.
