What you're trying to achieve here? Are you talking about backup of your VMs? Or, moving VMs from 1 ESXi to another ESXi (vMotion)?

If you have the *FREE* version of ESXi, you will be limited on what you can do, because Backup software does not have access to the Licensed APIs.

see my EE Article

VMware ESX/ESXi Backup Guide

You are correct Veeam Backup and Replication does not work on FREE, very few backup products do. Checkout my EE Article for GhettoVCB which does work.

VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 5.1 works as well.
