Good afternoon.  If you go over, all backups will stop, not just VM backups.

Hello Orazan

it’s not very nice because if I have paied for many feature is not correct that one over licensed status block the entire backup software

please in a future update correct this behaviour ! I think that isn’t a difficult change for developers..

@Federico I understand your concerns, but do mind that in case you have configured alerting that is allows you to reset the counter a few times offering time to address the license issue by removing clients or buying additional capacity. B.t.w. are you combining the two different flavors in a single CommCell?

@Onno: yes I have two different flavours of license… xxx TB of FTE + xxx nr. of VM

I know that there are many options to avoid this condition: email alert, grace period, delete unused client… it’s a simple curiosity 😅
