License usage

Post by alwitco » Jan 25, 2017 3:14 pm

Is it possible to install Veeam Backup & Replication on multiple servers as long as the total number of sockets backed up by each backup server (combined) does not exceed the number of sockets licensed?

In other words:
If we have a license for 3 sockets, can I have one instance of Veeam B&R installed on one server that only backs up a host with 2 sockets, and another instance of B&R installed on a different server backing up a host with only 1 socket.
Sort of like spreading out my VMware 6 sockets license among 2-3 hosts.

Hi John,

Since you do not exceed the number of licensed sockets, you can install as many Veeam B&R servers as you need.

Thanks!

[MERGED] Second Veeam server

Post by Ontrial » Jul 24, 2017 2:16 pm

I wish to build a second veeam server that will run on storage that will be air gapped periodically

I would like this to have no repository or proxy dependency outside of that storage

Is it ok to install a second VEEAM server if all the hosts are correctly licensed in the first veeam server ?

thanks

Hi,

Sure, install as many Veeam B&R instances as you need, since your sockets are licensed. Thanks!
