I recently had to migrate a VM from an old host to a new one, both were running ESXi 6.0. The license has been migrated from the old host to the new host, as the old hardware will be discarded. But on the new host, Veeam refuses to run the backup. It gives me the same error message, as if the host has not been licensed.
Error: 05-Aug-15 00:27:23 :: Processing Server 2008 R2 Error: Current license or ESXi version prohibits execution of the requested operation.
The license has been applied, I double and triple checked.

Do you see this new host in the licensed host list? If you do see it there, can you revoke the key and then run the backup job one more time.
If this doesn't help, then please contact our technical team, so we could take a look a the license key of the source host. BTW, does your license key say "vSphere Hypervisor" like in this thread > Veeam 8.0 - Cannot perform backup?

I´m trying to do a backup from an ESXi 5.1 Enterprise with licence for a physical CPU (cores unlimited per CPU), but I get the next error: "Processing Solarwinds-LAB2 Error: Current license or ESXi version prohibits execution of the requested operation.”
