As an example, three dual socket hosts in a VShpere Cluster (all licensed for VSphere), one of which is dedicated to failover. Can Veeam be licensed (without any dramas) on only two of these (4 sockets) or must all three be covered, despite one not hosting any VM's to be backed up?
Assuming a license transfer is possible in the above, what are the constraints (for example, only one license transfer permitted every 90 days), if any?

Veeam Backup & Replication is licensed per physical CPU socket of "source" hypervisor host (where protected virtual machines reside). Destination hosts for replication and migration jobs do not need to be licensed. Hosts running virtual machines which are not being processed by Veeam do not need to be licensed, even if they are a part of the same cluster.
More information about licensing can be found in a relative FAQ Topic. Thanks!
