This issue has been solved. See solution.


Can anyone suggest about licensing  in netbackup 7.0?

I have 3 hyper-v servers, 1 file server, 1 active directory and 2 tape drives running on all windows 2008 (2cpu's) with additional 2008 server which will host the backup.

Backup will run on LAN

In traditional license model, you need at least;

  • 1 Enterprise Server license for master server
  • 3 Enterprise Client license for Hyper-V backup(1 license per 1 physical host)
  • 2 Standard Client licese for physical host(if the file server and the Domain Controller is both physical host)
  • 2 Library-based Tape Drive Support license
  • (Optional) 1 Application & Database Pack license if you are to configure Active Directry Granular Recovery backup

In capacity-based license model, purchase NetBackp Platform license based on Front End Tera Bytes(FETB) of backup tartgets.

In addition to Yasuhisa's excellent post, I see that you have a Partner badge next to your name.
This means that you can download the NetBackup Licensing Guide from PartnerNet.
