download the retail kit and use “Install Data Protection Manager” on the DPM server

image

the installer detects the running trial and start the wizard for upgrading to retail

image

Runs a quick verify of prerequisites if it passed in trial it will pass again during the upgrade

image

This trial was installed with the internal database so it will be selected pr default for upgrade

image

The installer will need to create a user for running the SQL server.

image

Select if you want to use Microsoft Updates

 

image

Select if you want to upload CEIP info to Microsoft

image

and the installer is doing its work

image

and the trial product is now upgraded to retail

 

image

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

image

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.
