Phoenix backup proxy agent for VMware virtual infrastructure integrates with ESX and vSPhere vStorage API (VADP) to perform backup and restore. If the ESX/vSphere host is not licensed for the vStorage APIs, the backup and restore operations fail.
Error Code: VMWARE_VMOMI65535
Error Message: VMware VMOMI: Internal Error [Current license or ESXi version prohibits execution of the requested operation.]
Verify whether the ESX/vSphere host is licensed
Check the following to verify whether the ESX/vSphere host is licensed:
- On ESX(i)/vSphere 4.x or 5.x, navigate to Configuration > Licensed Features and verify whether vStorage APIs are listed.
- On ESX(i)/vSphere 7.x, navigate to Configure > System > Licensing > Licensed Features and verify whether Storage APIs are listed.
If the ESX(i)/vSphere host is not licensed for the above options, contact VMware to obtain the vStorage APIs (or VADP) license.
