Hello friends.

Please help me to find a solution.

Our company have already bought 5 licenses of Symantec backup Exec 2012 V-ray edition to install them on 5 enterprise sites.
Now we decided to make one central management console to manage all backupexec servers.
How many licenses of "enterprise server option" do we need to buy to make this.
Thanks in advance.

Considering that you would be using one Central Administration Server(CAS), you would need one Enterprise Server Option.

Note: A managed Backup Exec server environment is defined as a group of Backup Exec Servers managed by a single Backup Exec Central Adfministrator server or, in the event a Backup Exec Central Administration server is not present, a managed Backup Exec Sercer environment shall mean a static group of five Backup Exec servers. 

Please refer to the Backup Exec 2012 Licensing Guide for more details:
