Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4
User Guide for VMware vSphere

Viewing Licensed Objects and Revoking License

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

To view a list of licensed objects:

  1. From the main menu, select License.
  2. In the License Information window:
    • For protected workloads, open the Instances tab and click Manage.
    • For licensed hosts, open the Sockets tab and 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 workloads that were engaged in the jobs.

Revoking License

You can revoke licenses from protected workloads and re-apply them to other workloads that you plan to protect. License revoking can be helpful, for example, if the licensed host goes out of service or you do not want to protect some workloads anymore.

To revoke a license from the protected workload:

  1. From the main menu, select License.
  2. In the License Information window:
    • For protected workloads, open the Instances tab and click Manage.
    • For licensed hosts, open the Sockets tab and click Manage.
  1. In the displayed window, select a licensed object and click Revoke. Veeam Backup & Replication will revoke the license from the licensed object, and the license will be freed for other objects in the backup infrastructure.
