How to find how many licenses I need

Hello everyone,

What is the most accurate way to find how many extra licenses (Databases and Applications, Windows, etc) I need to buy for Backup Exec 2012?

Does the License Assesment Tool provides this kind of information?

Many thx in advance for your help

Hello there,

   You can install BE in your environment and then run all the backups in the trial (evaluation) mode. Then you can use the Backup Exec License Assessment Tool (BELAT) to detect how many licenses you require.

What BELAT does is it compares and finds the license keys that are installed and the number of resources that are backed up. The License Assessment Tool creates a license key scan report that shows a comparison between the number of resources with the number of license keys.

So in evaluation you will not have any licenses. So BELAT will display all the licenses that re required.
