[RESOLVED] License Requirements for Virtual Lab ESXi Host

Post by bitformer_tk » Feb 15, 2019 11:54 am

Hi,

if a customer has two Hosts with 1 cpu each licensed with one Essentials Enterprise License managed by Enterprise Manager and would also like to use a dedicated third Host (older machine with limited CPU/Memory capacity) for Virtual Lab / Sure Backup Purpose only. Does the customer need an additional Essentials Enterprise License?

Thanks in Advance!

Hi Bitformer, welcome to the Veeam Forums. Generally speaking, licenses are consumed when the Veeam primary data mover happens (like a backup from, a replica from, etc.). Restores to do not count. Running a Data Lab would not be a consumption like a backup, replica, etc. Here is also some additional licensing info for consideration if instance licensing is used: https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... l?ver=95u4
