To assist in excluding hosts from monitoring if it causes a conflict with the amount of CPU socket licenses they have available or they no longer wish to monitor this host.
In Veeam 9.5 we removed the setting for disabling Hosts right from the menu. Now we do it through the Managed VM’s tab. Excluding a host this way will also exclude the sockets that were used for that host. You should see the licensed socket count change after this KB has been finished.
The first thing to do is go into the Server Settings for Veeam One.
After the server settings window is open we are going to go into the Monitored VM’s tab and hit the ‘Create New…’
This will open a new window where we will put in the information for this new exclusion rule. In this window name and describe the rule in any way you want. Click next when you are finished.
In the next window we will click ‘Add…” and then ‘Infrastructure Tree’.
When the tree shows up in a new window, go ahead and find the host you no longer wish to be in Veeam One.
Once the host is selected click ‘OK’ and hit ‘Next’. This will send you to the last window which will give you an overview of the change. Just hit finish and your all done.
