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 and within the Veritas Entitlement Management System. Each active User of a Veritas Entitlement Management System (VEMS) account will receive the Software Version Upgrade notification unless they have opted out of receiving these notifications.
To access VEMS, click the Veritas Support ‘Licensing’ option.
For more information on the Veritas Entitlement Management System, please see the Veritas Entitlement Management System FAQ and the User Guide.

Only Administrators and Users (with the ability to generate license keys) that have been granted access to the Entitlement Group, can generate license keys/files for grouped Entitlements. For more information, see the VEMS online Help or the VEMS User Guide.
Products can be generated by Users who have either the ‘Administrator’ or the ‘Download Software’ privilege within a VEMS Account. Users with the ability to download software can download software for any Entitlement within the Account. The only exception is when an Entitlement has been added to an Entitlement Group.

The Veritas Entitlement Management System (VEMS) is an entitlement management portal that provides access to entitlements purchased from Veritas. As orders are fulfilled by Veritas, Entitlements are created in the customer’s VEMS Account that allows the Users of the VEMS account to access the Entitlement information, to download software, and to generate license keys within that Account.
