I am in the process of migrating all of my VMware VMs to a new SAN, as well as upgrading them all to ESXi 5 U2 from ESX 4 U3. To accomplish this, I have added a new host, which then puts me over my Veeam ONE licensed CPU count. I commonly glance at the Veeam status icon in my system tray to make sure everything is ok, but of course now it shows a red X because of this "configuration issue". I would like to tell Veeam to ignore this host somehow so that I get my nice green checkmark back, and this situation is only temporary. Is there a way to tell Veeam to ignore the temporary host?
A possible workaround that I thought of was getting a 30-day trial key and entering it, then when I remove the host put my company's license key back in. Would I lose historical data if I did this?
