There isn't any explicit " Backup Recommendation Tool" . This refers to the recommendation alerts generated during certain backups & also to the "Backup Recommendation" report which can be run from the Reports tab.

This will basically tell you you are backing up a SQL server without a SQL license.  Click X link to read more about it.  It's pretty Microsoft centric (e.g. AD, Exchange, etc) last I recall, and was first introduced in R2.

This will be in all of your job logs, but you can also run a general report as well like VJware stated.

There is an online portal, save yourself the long hold times. Create ticket online, then call in with ticket # in hand :-) "We backup data to restore, we don't backup data just to back it up."
