Command Line API to list currently licensed ESX hosts

Veeam Logoby txveamuser » Fri Feb 10, 2017 7:56 pm

Does anyone know of or have a way to use Veaam's APIs to list out the currently licensed hosts? I know I can view these from the GUI licenese information window, but I'd like to produce a list for monthly/quarterly review by a team that manages vCenter.

Hello Brian,
Could you specify the use case? Do you revoke license often?
Thanks!

Running over capacity with hosts during a DC migration and would like to produce a report for VM admins to review. Then they can reply with what licenses are not needed.

As you need a report with a list of licensed ESXi hosts to check which hosts are licensed with no or least utilization, you may want a report which shows the hosts license consumption and information of backed up VMs. By the way, do you have that much of migrations to review the license usage monthly?
I`m asking with a perspective of creation a predefined Veeam ONE report for such a cases.
Thanks!
