- Which features are added/removed on Plesk 10/11 Lease license that is installed on Plesk 12?
If you have a Perpetual/Purchased Plesk license, it is necessary to have it upgraded to version 12. Upgrade is possible in case the license has SUS . If license has SUS, it will be automatically upgraded to Plesk 12 when you upgrade your Plesk server. License type will be changed to: Plesk 12 (upgrade from Plesk 10/11) Purchased . After upgrade, such license will have all new features that are available in Plesk 12. But it will not be OS-unified as edition-based licenses.
Licenses without SUS will not be automatically upgraded to Plesk 12: you have to purchase SUS and upgrade your license manually (see instructions here: https://kb.plesk.com/126294 ), or contact Licensing and purchase support to request manual upgrade of Plesk license to Plesk 12.
Plesk 10/11 and later Lease licenses are compatible with Plesk 12, so these licenses do not need to be updated or replaced. When you upgrade your server to Plesk 12, your Plesk 10/11 and later Lease license will remain active on Plesk 12. However Plesk 10/11 Lease license is not converted to Plesk 12 license type. It remains Plesk 10/11 Lease license that is used on Plesk 12 server.
Plesk 10/11 Lease license installed on Plesk 12 server does not include all new features of Plesk 12. Availability of new Plesk 12 features and add-ons for owners of Plesk 10/11 licenses depends on the domain limit of the Plesk 10/11 license.
The features available with Plesk 10/11 Lease license will depend on the number of domains on this license, see the table below. Not all new Plesk 12 features are available for Plesk 10/11 Lease licenses. In order to use all new Plesk 12 features, one should cancel Plesk 10/11 Lease license and purchase regular license for Plesk 12.
