Upgrading your edition

Upgrade your edition by adding the appropriate license. You can backup your server on one edition and restore it on a different edition.

Note: The product edition has no impact on the server backup archive, project files containing virtual services, or agent configuration files. You can apply a backup from a server of one edition to a server of a different edition, and use virtual services created by one edition in a server or designer of another edition.

For example, after you upgrade from Server Express to Server Premium, you can restore your server from a backup made on Server Express edition.
