Because of our mixed infrastructure we had a couple of Enterprise Managers running. We decided to merge them all to get one nice overview.
Our company had many types of Veeam implementations hence different licences as well. To name a few; datacenters, project sites, branch sites and even vessels.
Here's where we face a shortcoming of Enterprise Manager; we can only select one license to be pushed. They use a variety of license type, Enterprise, Enterprise Plus and the Availability Suite.
Now Veeam offers the possibility to merge licenses but it doesn't take in account that these licenses may have different retentions. Having different versions (8 and 9) doesn't help either. Also, each time we gain a new site I would need to obtain a new merged license file. I do love talking with support, but that would just take too much time and effort.
So here's my feature request; can Enterprise Manager be equipped with 'proper' license management features where I'm able to assign multiple license files to multiple server objects. This way I still have my single point of management for a wide array of locations.
I've created ticket 01762093 with support and they advised me to change the registry so the EM doesn't push the license to all the sites. I will implement this for the time being but it’s a workaround that causes me to manually update 100 sites once it's needed. It doesn't take care of the error I get about not having enough licenses either.
