Hi Simon,

As others correctly pointed out, if you are using the traditional licensing model, you need one Enterprise Client Tier 2 for each hypervisor host and one App/DB pack Tier 2 Windows/Linux/SolX64 for each hypervisor host if you need to protect applications running in VMs.

If you are using the capacity licensing model, you don't need extra licenses, provided you have your VM front-end TB capacity covered by the existing license set (although this is not enforced by NBU).

If you are running Windows/Linux and predominantly VMs, you may benefit from the new licensing model of NBU 8.0 called NetBackup Enterprise Virtual Client.

Hi All
Quick question (to anyone alive on this list).
Got full NBU environment which is great.

We do VMware backups, which is fine.

We need to add new ESX Hosts and therefore, need to license them.

I am struggling with Veritas to simply get a quote. These hosts are 2 CPU Linux based OS machines, which will run a mix on Win/Linux VM Guests.

I thought the name of the license was "Veritas Enterprise Client License" - Which you bought to license each ESX Host you have.

Is this correct, or is it known as something else?
Thanks, S.
