Feature request: Get B&R licensed VMs

Veeam Logoby jumave » Thu Jul 27, 2017 12:14 pm

As a service provider we need a powershell cmdlet to retrieve the list of VMs that obtained a B&R license to be able to bill the number of VMs backed up to our customers.
The list should be the same as in the "Licensed VMs" dialog in the Veeam Console.

Before we proceed to actual scripting, can you tell me why built-in licensing reports do not work for you? Thanks.

Other than the "Licensed VMs" dialog in the Veeam Console, what other licensing reports exist?

All that does is provide a license count to Veeam. We need a report for ourselves.

You can save this report and use it on your own demand. Thanks.

I don't have auto-update configured but the C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Backup\Reports folder doesn't exist on my servers.

Even if license auto update is disabled, backup server should still generate a report on the first day of the month and automatically save it in the given directory.

In the adjacent thread you've mentioned that you're using combination of SP rental and Cloud Connect licenses. Aren't you using this combination within one backup server by any chance?

Thanks.

Nope. I have 5 Veeam servers: 1 CC server, 1 managed by Enterprise Manager (for the Self-Service portal), and three others.

Got it. If so, the described behaviour does't look expected, please, reach our support team and let them check why license usage functionality doesn't work in your case. Thanks.
