This has been fixed in Acronis Backup & Recovery 11

This article applies to:

  • Acronis vmProtect 7


You have a machine that has any of the following environments:

  • There is Acronis Backup & Recovery 10/11 License Server installed;
  • There was Acronis Backup & Recovery 10/11 License Server installed.

On the same machine, you install Acronis vmProtect 7 as Windows Agent;

After the installation, Acronis vmProtect 7 licenses may be incorrectly assigned to hosts - the hosts take more licenses than necessary. For example, a host with two CPU sockets may take 4 or 5 licenses, whereas it should take only two.


This is a known compatibility issue with the License Server component of Acronis Backup & Recovery. If there are (or there are traces of) Acronis Backup & Recovery licenses in the system, more Acronis vmProtect 7 licenses than expected may be taken by ESX hosts.


This has been fixed in Acronis Backup & Recovery 11. Please update to the latest build:
