Backup/Replication for ESXI paid product

Post by preeves »

I am trying to replicate from ESXI 3.5 server to our Vcenter.
Keep getting this error.
Checking the license for the source host "esxiname" Your Veeam Backup license does not allow processing of free ESXi.
But we have a paid ESXI license actually we have 3 paid license that we have tried none of them work.
HELP please

Philip, this means that most likely you do not have your VMware license installed correctly on the host. Veeam Backup judges on whether the host is free ESXi based on querying certain host parameter using VMware API. And for some reason, VMware API thinks that your host is in the free licensing mode.

You can contact our support to obtain detailed instructions on how to get this response without Veeam Backup (through ESX MOB portal), so that you could then take this problem to VMware Support.

One thing I would try before that is revoking the Veeam Backup license from this host using the Help | License Information menu in Veeam Backup, and running the job again.

Thank you!
