Cause

Veeam Agents that are functioning in the Free mode cannot connect to the Veeam backup server.

Solution

Allow free Veeam Agents to obtain license from the backup server. To learn more, see the Managing Instance Consumption by Veeam Agents section in the Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows User Guide.
