    Licensing

    Veeam Plug-ins for Enterprise Applications is licensed per Application server. To utilize Rental licensing for Veeam Plug-ins for Enterprise Application, it must be connected to Veeam Backup & Replication installation, which uses Rental Enterprise Plus license.

    You can create a single license to cover all types of workloads protected by a single Veeam Backup & Replication server. The license file can be generated and assigned to the backup server installation using VCSP Pulse plug-in for Veeam Service Provider Console. Alternatively, a new license file can be generated on the VCSP Pulse Portal by adding the Application server workload type in the Manage Licenses > Request New License > Veeam Backup & Replication > Application server section.

    Note

    A machine protected by both Veeam Plug-in and Veeam Backup & Replication will consume a license only once. For example, you have an Oracle server that you back up using Veeam Plug-in. You also back up this server using image-level backup functionality of Veeam Backup & Replication. In this case, only one license will be consumed.

    Each workload under protection consumes the license at a rate in alignment with the VCSP Rental Point Per Unit (PPU).

    Usage Reporting

    A new license usage report is generated on the first day of each month. It includes the number of monitored workloads for the past month. Usage for these workloads can be tracked using the Enterprise Applications counter name.

    The primary and recommended usage reporting method is Veeam Service Provider Console, an automated and free tool for license management and reporting. To enable license usage reporting, connect Veeam Backup & Replication servers. Once done, license usage from all workloads managed by that server will be included into the monthly License Usage Report.

    Alternatively, license usage can be obtained by one of the following ways:

    Then, the overall usage must be submitted through VCSP Pulse Portal.
