Multiple Autoloaders and licencing

Created: 19 Feb 2014 • Updated: 19 Feb 2014 | 1 comment


I'm currently using Backup Exec 2010 R3 SP3 with an 8 slot autoloader which has 1 tape device in it, if I were to add an additional 8 slot autoloader with 1 tape device in it would I need to purchase an LEO licence?

The licencing PDF states - per drive in library past the first drive in each library - but I not sure I follow.

Thanks in advance

Hey Andy,

The LEO option applies when there is more than 1 Tape drive in 1 Tape Library/Device. If you are adding a 2nd device that has just 1 tape drive you should not need the LEO license.
