Ive got a HP Prolliant ML350 Server running the free HP Build of VMware - HPE-ESXi-6.7.0-iso-Gen9plus-618.104.22.168.6 (Hewlett Packard Enterprise). The server has 2 CPUs with 8 cores per socket and 80gb of Ram. I have 3 guest running Windows 2012 server and Im trying to setup Veeam to backup the boxes but Im getting the following error in Veeam which indicates something is not right with the licensing.
Processing Main SQL Server Error: Current vSphere license or ESXi version prohibits execution of the requested operation.
Sounds like the HP VMware license is the issue and I probably need at the very least an VMWare Essenttial License key - does this key have to be bought from HP or can I get it off VMWare themselves? Can I apply the license via the web gui of the VMHost?
