You need to configure your master as BMR master, perform Client backup with Collect disaster recovery Information for Bare Metal Restore selected in Policy Attributes, configure BMR boot server.

Please go through the BMR Admin Guide for your NBU version. Links to all NBU manuals can be found in 'Handy NBU Links' in my signature.

How can I check, how many BMR clients are allowed?

Is there any method to check the licenses?

Also, kindly advice, how can I remove a BMR client from Bare Metal Restore Management > Hosts > Bare Metal Restore Clients.?

Thank You

There is no limit on adding bmr clients. BMR is a free add-on comes with standard NB client.

You can right click on client and remove. This will remove all client information captured for that client from bmr database. But if you take backup again with the same policy then it will re-create client BMR node again. If you do not want to protect client for bmr recovery then you need to remove it from the bmr backup policy client list.
