Current Veritas customers with maintenance or support for any Veritas product are entitled to a free software version upgrade for any new release of that product or its successor.
Maintenance and support are purchased or subscribed to for a specific period of time. "Current" means this period of time has not lapsed or been terminated and the support agreement is in effect.
Veritas continually brings technology advances to your software investments so that customers, who have an active maintenance/support agreement, get ongoing performance and other improvements.
Customers can get a free software version upgrade for each qualified product currently covered by an active maintenance/support agreement. Eligible license owners are notified of the version upgrade opportunity by Veritas and given instructions for how to get the new software.
Notification of a Software Version Upgrade automatically occurs via email. Each active member of the customer’s Licensing Portal account will receive the Software Version Upgrade notification.
If a notification does not reach a customer by email, the license owner may visit the Licensing Portal to access the pending upgrade opportunity using the following steps:
Upon a major release of a new version of software, Veritas notifies customers by email of their Software Version Upgrade. The notification provides instructions to access the pending upgrade opportunity.
