Cloudbacko license violation when backing up ESXi6 free [SOLVED]

Postby mattiteppo12 » Tue Sep 15, 2015 4:54 am

Hello,

I received a license violation notice from ESXi6 free version (only server that I back up currently) out of the blue. The server did not change and I checked that licensing is correct.

Under Cloudbacko Settings -> License I can see that "VMWare Backup Module" is the cause of this, but no idea why.

I have checked for updates and should be running the latest Cloudbacko Pro version.

Hello,

Please try the following unofficial patch, this should fix the problem.

1. Make sure you are on at least 1.11.2.0
2. Download http://s3.amazonaws.com/CloudBacko/unof ... 2x/bin.zip
3. Shutdown CloudBacko Windows Services
4. Expand the files inside bin.zip to "C:\Program Files\CloudBacko Pro", "C:\Program Files\CloudBacko Lite" or "C:\Program Files\CloudBacko Home"
5. Startup CloudBacko Windows Services
6. Open CloudBacko GUI and reconfigure the backup set
7. Check the license page to see if VMWare module is still considered to be used.

Then wait for up to 7 days, the license violation message will disappear.

I just went to check before updating and now the software shows no violations on license listing, but still shows the warning under details. I'll try the unofficial patch if the issue returns or if the warning doesn't go away.

Hi mattiteppo12,

Would like to let you know that the latest version of 1.11.4.0 has been released which addresses the licensing issue with ESXi 6(Free). For details on how to check if you are on the latest version & update, please refer to the following FAQ "How do I update my CloudBacko installation to the latest version?" viewtopic.php?f=58&t=73
