Veeam Availability Orchestrator 1.0
Deployment Guide

Example

Consider the following example.

Your Rental license covers 100 VMs. The exceed grace period for the license is 2 months.

At the beginning of January, the number of VMs is 140. Within the first 2 months (January and February), Veeam Availability Orchestrator will manage 100 + 20 VMs that were added to VAO failover plans first (license limit + 20% allowed increase). 20 VMs that were added last will not be managed.

If the license is not updated until the end of the grace period, and the license pool is not increased, in March, VAO will change the status of 40 VMs that exceed the license limit to Unlicensed by Exceed.

Example 

Consider the same example with New VMs.

In the middle of January, 40 New VMs are added to VAO failover plans. Veeam Availability Orchestrator will manage these VMs until the end of the month. If the license is not updated, and the license pool is not increased, in February, VAO will change the license statuses as follows:

  • The first 20 VMs that obtained the Licensed by Exceed status in January will keep the same Licensed by Exceed status.
  • The second 20 VMs that obtained the Unlicensed by Exceed status in January will keep the same Unlicensed by Exceed status.
  • The last 40 VMs added in the middle of January will obtain the Unlicensed by Exceed status according to the FIFO queue.

If the license is not updated until the end of the grace period, and the license pool is not increased, in March, VAO will change the status of 80 VMs that exceed the license limit to Unlicensed by Exceed.
