Adding a tape library and Backup Exec Server

Created: 05 Dec 2012 • Updated: 22 Feb 2013 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have an existing Backup Exec server and tape library. I am adding a new Backup Exec server and additional tape library. I have a license for 2 servers, do I also need an additional Library Expansion Option license? Also, I want to move my Mac backups to the new server. How can I move the Mac license to that server?

Thanks.

If your new library have more than one tape drive, then you do need seperate LEO licenses. Coming to MAC licenses, i hope you have related slf files with you. If so, you can just remove the licneses from existing server as you don't need them anymore, and add them in new server using .slf files.

Regarging LEO -

When you install Backup Exec, support for the first drive in every robotic library is included. The Library Expansion Option enables support for each additional drive in a robotic library.

Regarding the MAC License - you can remove the license from earlier server and add that in the new one as Kiran pointed out.
