This issue has been solved. See solution.


I am working on desing a backup solution for 2 server with Red Hat Linux with Oracle RAC and I need to get information about the licensing required.  I think I need this licensing configuration.

1. one Agent for Aplications and Databases.

2. two Agents for Linux

3. one Backup Exec 2012 server.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Duplicate thread of

1 BE core license

1 Agent for Application (which includes RAWS, not exactly sure if it includes RALUS)

1 Agent for RALUS (only if the application include a RALUS) else 2 Agent for RALUS.

Refer to SCL

I have been checking the licensing guide before posting and I didnt find information about this.  I check the BE 2012 admin guide and I found the Agent for Oracle for windows and Linux.  But I am not sure at all.

Best Regards

For the designing the solution, you will need 1 Backup Exec 2012 server license and 2 licenses for Applications and Databases to protect your Linux servers with Oracle RAC.

Thanks and Regards,
