Host shows as unlicensed after updating ESX

SUMMARY

After updating ESX on one or more hosts you may see an error on backup suggesting that your host is unlicensed

ISSUE

After updating ESX on one or more hosts you may see an error on backup suggesting that your host is unlicensed.

The cause is that  updating the hosts often reassigns a new UUID to the host under VMware and this new UUIID no longer matches the UUID the license was assigned to.

To correct this issue, restart the PHD Console by closing, then reopening it, then use the License Manager area to re-apply the license to all hosts and PHD VBAs and click Save.
