Multiple Veeam One instances and license

Post by Peejay62 »

Hi,

we are running a Veeam One environment that monitors our VMware an VBR environment. We are performing an infrastructure upgrade that will result in a completely new VMware environment (with new VCenter and new hardware). Now the question arises, actually we want to rebuild Veeam One also (for that new environment),
is it possible to run a second, new Veeam one server with a new instance, connected only to the new environment and use the license file we own? The old Veeam one will bleed out as we migrate to the new infrastructure, license need for esxhosts will not change, at least will not exceed the number we need now. So we will always stay license compliant but I wonder if this is possible at all?

thanks,

Peter

Hi Peter,

You are allowed to use a single license to monitor two different infrastructures only if the total number of sockets/instances across two environments does not exceed the licensed limit. In your particular case, as a workaround, you may use a trial license in one of the VONE deployments to cover the migration period.

Thanks

Hi,

so ok, just to be clear. I can install two Veeam One servers / instances, use the same license for both of them and take care of not exceeding the license limit? This will fit in our migration because when on the new infrastructure a host is added on the old it will be removed from monitoring. So in effect the total number of sockets in use will remain the same. A trial license will probably not fit because it will take some time for the migration (we planned months).

Thanks, Peter

Hi Peter,

In this particular scenario, when an old host is removed from monitoring before being added to the monitoring in the new infra, this approach is allowed.

Thanks

Hi Fedor,

thanks for your reply, this is exactly how we intend to do this migration so it will work and we stay license compliant.

regards
