Troubleshooting steps

Possible issues:

  • Synchronization is successful, but licenses are not added to License Server
  1. Make sure that credentials of Acronis account are correct: you can verify them by logging in on Acronis website here. Verify that licenses are registered on the same account.
  2. Check connection to Acronis Account server as described in Acronis Cyber Backup 12.5: synchronization with Acronis account fails
  3. Check that required ports are open and the connection is not blocked by the firewall: see Firewall settings for Acronis products
  4. Verify that Acronis Service Manager Service is running under Network Service user and Network Service has full access to the folder C:\ProgramData\Acronis

  5. If credentials are correct, connection to Account server is established without errors, Acronis Services are running under correct users and have necessary privileges, collect the following information and contact Acronis Customer Central:
