The traditional licensing report is helpful if you use the traditional NetBackup licensing model. The traditional NetBackup licensing model is based on the number of NetBackup clients, servers, and options in use. As per this model, you purchase licenses based on the number of NetBackup clients, servers, and options on which you want to run NetBackup. As you deploy additional NetBackup clients or servers or attach additional tape drives or storage to NetBackup, you must license additional copies of the appropriate NetBackup product.
The traditional licensing report is generated in the form of an Excel sheet. Basically OpsCenter invokes the nbdeployutil executable on the master server to collect the required data. OpsCenter invokes the nbdeployutil executable (bundled with OpsCenter) to analyze the collected data.
The traditional license report provides details about your utilization of the NetBackup components. The report lists all the NetBackup components and the associated tier for each component.
