Using Veeam Service Provider Console
To streamline the license management process, you can use Veeam Service Provider Console — a free product with a web-based user interface. With Veeam Service Provider Console you can install, update, and revoke licenses on your Cloud Connect servers, tenant backup servers, and Veeam backup agents.
In addition, by using built-in VCSP Pulse plug-in, you can generate new licenses directly from the Veeam Service Provider Console for the following products:
- Veeam Backup & Replication (and all products integrating with it, including Veeam Backup for AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud)
- Veeam Agents
- Veeam Cloud Connect
- Veeam ONE
- Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365
To learn more about managing and installing licenses from Veeam Service Provider Console, see the Managing License section in the Guide for Service Providers.
If a license file with the same ID is utilized on multiple backup servers, the Shared license key usage alert will be triggered. To resolve that, create tenant companies in VCSP Pulse and generate individual licenses for each tenant’s Veeam Backup & Replication installation.
Self-service license management capabilities are also available to service resellers. To utilize that, a service provider has to enable License Management in the reseller settings. To use this functionality, the reseller must be registered on the ProPartner Portal and then enable the VCSP Pulse plug-in integration.
On the first day of a new month, Veeam Service Provider Console generates a single license usage report which includes all protected (and monitored by Veeam ONE) workloads from all connected Veeam product installations. This report can be reviewed, adjusted and then submitted. Once you click Submit, the finalized report will be generated. Then you must submit usage from the report to VCSP Pulse Portal.
