So we purchased various "Server" and "workstation" licences.
It now turns out that if a server is virtualized (i.e. a VMware or hyper-V VM) the server licence won't work. Apparently you need a "virtual" licence to back up any server that happens to also be a VM.
Ugh. guess who now owns a bunch of licenses that can't be used?
I either missed this or it wasn't mentioned in any of the webinars or betas or training.
What happens if I happen to P2V a server or do a DR restore of a VM to bare metal at some future point?
Any comments from Kaseya re the licencing model - how's it supposed to work, why are virtuals treated differently? This is such a headache for simply using modern technology.
That is true, Server on a VM will need a VM license. You should work with your salesperson to get that straighten out.
yeah this is a total mess. i can't do a folder backup on a windows 10 machine because its running as a VM? can we make the acronis agent look at operating system instead of manufacturer.
