Need some help. I inherited a Server 2003 runing Netbackup It runs great! My company is moving to the Server 2008R2. So we are migrating our policies and robots to a newly built server running Netbakup 7.5.01. So far everything has went perfectly. The last policy to move to the new server is the Hyper-V policy.

We have a 3 node cluster with CSV that has been backing up to the older server. Today as i went to set up the new policy i found that the HYPER-V Policy type is not on the new server! I double checked that the version are the same.. whic they are.. and that all the physical nodes have been poined to the new Master server.

i has looked over the Hyper-V admin guide and hove not found any help!! So i am hoping you guys can help!!

Have you double-checked NBU license keys installed on new server?
Enterprise Client license is needed to enable policy type.

Thanks for your reply. The older server has tone more licences than the new one. Should i export all of them and import then into the new server?

After reviewing our Symantec liceninsing, i have found that i had not imported all of our license keys. After i imported them, the Hyper-V policy type is now available!

Thanks so much for your help!!!
