Computers using standalone keys may be reviewed on the Standalone Keys Licenses → Standalone section. This shows all computers with standalone keys and whether they are valid for use within Site Manager:
Macrium Agent Licenses
The drawback of these licenses are that they are dependent on communication with a Site Manager server - if the client computer cannot contact the Site Manager server, the agent cannot be used to perform backups as a standalone edition of Reflect could.
Metered Agent Licenses
Metered licensing is available to MSPs and other Macrium partners. This provides unlimited use of Site Manager and provides regular billing on actual use counts. Site Manager reports usage counts to the Macrium license servers, which use the information to produce billing based on high watermark usage.
Metered keys are managed as a special Agent license key with a type of Metered. Only one metered key per Site Manager is permitted and when in use, additional statistics about metered license usage is displayed on the Status page.
Managing Macrium Agent Licenses
The Licenses section of the Site Manager interface provides an overview of Macrium Agent License seats available and used in the Summary section.
This page also displays warnings if any agents are unlicensed or there is a shortfall in the appropriate license type. This may occur when there are insufficient workstation licenses for all workstation computers but excess server licenses. In this case, Site Manager will assign a server license to a workstation.

Pressing the Add License button will allow you to add a license. Please note if you enter an older version 6 key, you will be prompted to upgrade the key to version 7. If the version 6 key is eligible for a free upgrade, that will be performed otherwise Site Manager will ask for an upgrade key.
