Have you tried to search this forum before posting? 
Have you asked your Symantec Reseller about license keys?

If you want to config a SAN media server, you need to install Server software.

Add Enterprise Client License key.  Choose to install as media server. 

If you are going to configure tape drives that are shared with other media servers, you need to add Library based trape drive license as well as SSO license (same keys used on other media servers).

The only difference during config is that the Storage Unit must be configured as 'On Demand Only' as this server will only be able to backup itself.

SF=> License must be installed on both Master and SAN Media server

what license on master server?

SF=> Enterprise Client, SSO, Library Tape Option

what on SAN media server ?

SF=> Enterprise Client, SSO, Library Tape Option

what on tape drive?

You can't install NBU license on Tape drive !!! Clarify this

We have shared drives

SF=> SSO covers this

As stated by marianne, better first research over forum, may be you get solution prior to creating new thread. also speak to your symantec consultant/account manager for better understanding

Do review compatibility first prior to going for licenses

Hope this helps :-)

Is this a real server or a theoretical one?
