Kaspersky Anti-Virus 8.0 for Linux File Servers


What happens upon expiry of a license key file?

Back to "Licensing and Activation"
2012 Jan 23 ID: 4429

Applies to Kaspersky Anti-Virus 8.0 for Linux File Servers

Upon expiry of a commercial key file (such keys are valid for 1 year or more), the application keeps performing all its functions except updating antivirus databases. Automatic database updating from Kaspersky Lab update servers ceases functioning. Still the product will keep curing infected objects/filtering spam using antivirus databases downloaded not later than the last day before license key expiry. In case of an attempt to manually download and add databases, the product ceases functioning at all.

InformationUsing a commercial key file means a reject of trial key files making it impossible to extend the license period with a trial key file.

Upon expiry of a trial key file (such keys are valid for 1 month normally), the application stops functioning at all.

InformationInstallation of a trial key file makes it impossible to extend the license period with another trial key file. The second trial key file expiry date will be the same as that of the first one.

When application stops functioning upon expiry of a key file, its functionality can be restored simply by installing a new commercial key file. There is no need to reinstall the application itself however.
