Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5
User Guide for Microsoft Hyper-V

Viewing Licensed Hosts and Revoking License

When you run a job, Veeam Backup & Replication applies a license to the virtualization host on which processed VMs reside (for per-socket licenses) or to processed VMs (for per-VM licenses). You can view to which hosts or VMs the license is currently applied.

To view a list of licensed hosts or VMs:

  1. From the main menu, select License.
  2. In the License Information window, click Manage.

When you start Veeam Backup & Replication for the first time, the list is empty. After you run backup or replication jobs, the list will include source hosts or VMs that were engaged in the jobs.

Revoking License from Hosts or VMs

You can revoke the license from some hosts or VMs and re-apply it to other hosts or VMs. License revoking can be helpful, for example, if the licensed host goes out of service or you do not want to protect some VMs anymore.

To revoke a license from the host or VMs:

  1. From the main menu, select License.
  2. In the License Information window, click Manage.
  3. In the displayed window, select a host or VM and click Revoke. Veeam Backup & Replication will revoke the license from the host or VM, and the license will be freed for other hosts or VMs in the backup infrastructure.
