Hi Cyril,

According to the message you are using ESXi Hypervisor (free) license which has very limited APIs support and it doesn't support VMware vStorage API for Data Protection which is used to perform agent-less backup of VMs running on vSphere, so this vSphere license (ESXi Hypervisor) is not supported by Acronis Backup for VMware (vmProtect): see http://www.acronis.com/en-us/support/documentation/AVMP9/index.html#18884.html . In fact this means that no other product will support agent-less backup of VMs from free ESXi, because such backups in most cases are using VMware vStorage API for Data Protection.

Thank you.

Hi Cyril,

Demo/trial version of ESXi free (or any vSphere license actually) in fact includes all vSphere features including enterprise ones, so it explains why it works before you add ESXi Hypervisor license which adds restrictions to vSphere functionality.

Thank you.
