Symptoms

When taking Vmware backup with DP Express edition, customer see following error:

"Hypervisor...is not licensed"

Diagnosis

with DP express edition, every processor of ESXi server is counted as "socket" and it must be licensed in order to run backup

Solution

Run following command to add socket:

omnicc -add_socket -virtualhost Vcenter_hostname -hypervisor vcenter

omnicc -add_socket -virtualhost ESXi_hostname -hypervisor esxi

note: we need to import all related vcenter as well as esxi host to cell manager before adding socket
