This issue has been solved. See solution.

Dears,

I need to know how many Applications and Database license need to protect:

* Two mailbox cluster (Exchange server 2007 CCR)

Two Domain Controllers (Windows server 2008)

I want to confirm that I will need 4 Licenses, for each node on the two clusters one license. Am I correct ? or I need only 2 licenses. if there any Symantec document describe the cluster licenses , in both case Active/Active and Active/ Passive.

Thanks all for your cooperations

Per v 12.5's licensing guide, only the active node was needed to be licensed, however as suggested earlier, the licensing team would be in a better position to answer this as it may have changed for v 2012

You should check with the Symantec Licencing department to clarify any doubts.  They are the final authority on licencing matters.

Thanks All, How can I contact Symantec Licenseing Department.

I thought that I will need 1 App & DB for Exchange Cluster ( For Active Node), Exchange , except for DAG , for each mailbox role. 

In case of Active Directory, if the Customer will backup from the Virtual node it will need 1 Licenses, but if the customer will backup ( Create Jobs for both Two Nodes) this will need 2 Licenses.

Is that correct.

Thanks to all.

Dears,

Thanks alot for your cooperation,

I confirmed with Symantec that I will need Only License Applications and Databases for the active node in case of Exchange, and I will need Two Licenses for Active Directory in case if the client will perform the backup for both AD nodes.

Thanks
