Revoking License Units
By default, Veeam Backup for GCP automatically revokes a license unit from a protected VM instance if no new restore points have been created by the backup policy during the past 31 days. However, you can manually revoke license units from protected VM instances — this can be helpful, for example, if you remove a number of VM instances from a backup policy and do not want to protect them anymore.
To revoke a license unit from a VM instance, do the following:
- Switch to the Configuration page.
- Navigate to License > License Usage.
- Select the VM instance that you no longer want to protect.
- Click Revoke License.
- In the Confirmation window, click Yes to confirm that you want to revoke the license unit.
