Active Vs Inactive users

Post by Kellen.Flood » Sep 06, 2017 4:17 pm

we have 1700 active users and 300 inactive users (no longer with company)...
If we have a user we have been backing up, and that user leaves....i will have an archive locally of their backups with Veeam assuming i have been using o365 tool....but will i then have an open user when we hire someone to backfill them and just use the same license for the new user?

Hi Kellen,

That should be indeed the idea. However, please note that (when licensed) the inactive user will only lose his "license seat" after 30 days. But with the new licensing options in the future and the grace periods, that will not be an issue. But you do need to take that user (inactive one) out of the backup job.

Additional tip: Many companies then use our Veeam Explorer to export that entire user to a PST and safeguard it somewhere ;-)
