download the retail kit and use “Install Data Protection Manager” on the DPM server
the installer detects the running trial and start the wizard for upgrading to retail
Runs a quick verify of prerequisites if it passed in trial it will pass again during the upgrade
This trial was installed with the internal database so it will be selected pr default for upgrade
The installer will need to create a user for running the SQL server.
Select if you want to use Microsoft Updates
Select if you want to upload CEIP info to Microsoft
and the installer is doing its work
and the trial product is now upgraded to retail
the installer don’t clean up the old trial instances of SQL and SQL Reporting so they need to be removed manually after verification that everything works
and after the upgrade is final it is now possible to use “update dpm licenses” to enter purchased licenses
Very smooth upgrade from trial to retail this is a great asset to products for a fast step up to licensed products.
