Viewing Information on Sockets
With socket licenses, Veeam Backup & Replication applies a license to the virtualization host on which the processed VMs reside.
To view to which objects the license is currently applied, open the Sockets tab.
Viewing Information on Instances
With instance licenses, Veeam Backup & Replication applies a license to a protected workload. The number of license instances that a protected workload consumes depends on the workload type and product edition. For details, see Veeam Licensing Policy.
To view to which objects the license is currently applied, open the Instances tab.
By default, Veeam Backup & Replication allows Veeam Agents to connect to the Veeam backup server and consume instances in the license.
