Hi,

 

Nothing special needed in terms of extra licensing unless you intend to share a FAN-attached tape library. If so, you need the SAN SSO option for BE 12.5. You would also need an additional media server license PER SAN-attached server along with agent licenses for the servers you want to share the library with.

If not, then simply load the RAWS agent on the target server which has LUNs presented to it from the SAN and select what you want to backup in a selection list. Using this method, backups run across the LAN, but no other configuration is needed.

Thanks!

...any library listed on your version of BE's HCL. Do a search for that and see. Any library that has more than 1 tape drive needs an extra Library Expansion Option license PER additional library.

EG: Library has 4 drives, the first drive is licensed by installing BE, and you need an additional 3 LEO.

If you want additional information on SAN SSO read below:
