Re: [Networker] ClientPak for Unix?

1. Does the built-in support for 10 clients (server and 9 other clients)
that you always get with NetWorker extend to all non-Linux flavors of
Unix as long as you have the "ClientPak for Unix"? In other words, in
our case, if we had no other "NetWorker client connections", would we
still be able to back up 9 AIX boxes, or 9 SGI boxes, or any
combination, etc. assuming the server was Solaris, or does the built-in
support only allow for 9 Solaris clients (server makes 10)?
Yes. All client types should be authorized with the 10pak.
A ClientPak license is to backup anything that is not the same "class"
(class and/or platform would be used *very* losely) as the server. So,
our backup server is Irix, thus without a ClientPak license, I can
backup Irix, Solaris, HPUX, AIX. I need a ClientPak license for Windows
and Linux (which are my other two platforms I backup.)
2. If we we're only backing up Solaris clients, would the "ClientPak for
Unix" be necessary?
2. What would happen if we removed the "ClientPak for Unix"? We're still
running 6.1.1, but not sure if later updates obviated the need for this
product? We're getting ready to renew our maintenance and needed to know
if this should definitely be included.
My understanding is that's for all non-server UNIXes (so like HP and AIX
stuff). Linux and Windows are covered separately as you said.
This is all from my understanding of previous comments and discussions.
Most of the time I work on systems, it's not resolving clientpak
If you have a Unix (Irix, Solaris, HPUX, AIX) based backup server, you
do not need the "ClientPak for Unix."
