Additional Licences for Migrations

Post by dtwiley » Oct 27, 2017 3:11 pm

I'm migrating a client from Hyper-V to VMWare soon (VMWare FTW!)

Anyway, the project will run for a few months while we get VM's built and moved over, after which the older Hyper-V environment will be disconnected.

I'll need to backup both environments for a short period only during migration.

I know the Hyper-V licences can be re-issued as VMWare but is there any way we can receive a licence with BOTH in during the migration phase?

Hi Dave,

Yes, you can get it.
You should contact your Veeam sales representative as it states in the sticky note, Licensing section, question #6. Thanks!

I did that and she replied back saying that she could only give me a trial licence for VMWare but couldn't merge it with our production Hyper-V licence.

She sorted it, apparently the trial I was sent was for both hyper-v and vmware so its already sorted, thanks
