Veeam licence problem with licensed ESXi 3.5

Post by pmikulka » Sep 23, 2009 11:07 am

Hi,

we have licenced ESXi 3.5 (not free ESXi) server and Veeam Backup says "Your Veeam Backup license does not allow processing of free ESXi 3.5." when backup job is started. Where is the problem?

Veeam backup 3.1.1
ESXi 3.5.0 (123629)

Best regards,
Pavel

Pavel, we just query VMware API to determine whether the host is in "free" functionality mode, and it tells us. Please double check the license key imported in your host. Try to re-import "full" key. Note that "free" and "full" keys look alike and you may have confused them.

Marcus, it should work if ESXi host is fully licensed - please contact our support and they will assist you with this issue.
