CPU license check

Post by m.novelli » Feb 26, 2010 9:02 am

Hi, Veeam 4.x do an hard license check on source hosts CPUs? It blocks VM backup/replication when source CPU are higher than licensed?

I'm preparing an offer for a customer with highly variable datacenter: each month they add / change servers in Vmware datacenter

Thanks for any info

Marco

Hello Marco,

Yes, that's right. Veeam license policy is based on licensing source hosts only. License is generated by the amount of physical CPU sockets available on your hosts. You won't be able to use license with less socket amount then you actually have on your source hosts.

But if your customer freqently changes the configuration of the source hosts, he should use Revoke License command to revoke and re-assign licenses to the new hosts. But all source hosts involved in the backup/replication job have to be licensed in all cases.

Thank you!
