Hi,

I have windows 2008 R2 on Hyper V and two virtual cpu's installed with Active directory and database server.

How many licenses should i get? As far as i understand only one standard client/enterprise client would be sufficient or should i also need to purchase application and database license?

Thanks

Forgot to add one morebit-

In order to backup SAP EP development running on windows 2008 R2 oracle db, which license is required? Should i need to purchsase agent for sap and also standard client or just the standard client?

You will need the Netbackup Enterprise Client license on the master. In addtion you will need the snapshot license if you plan to backup Hyper V through pass-through disks or use snapshot.

Please see the Hpyer-V admin guide : http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC5161

In addtion to the license key, there are prerequisites.  Please review page 19-21

As far as SAP you do not need a seperate agent , however a license is required.

For more info on SAP, please review : http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC5176  -

Hello Dynedhia,

Thank you.

What about the additional VM's in hyper v? Does they also need saperate license or the Enterprise license is sufficeirnt to protect it?

I have 2 VM's one acting as Active directory and another as a database server.

I have 2 SAP server's in cluster production environmenr running on windows 2008 R2 with node 1 and node 2 and additional 5 servers (Assurance, 2xdevelopment,2xmanager). So the client license would be ok?

As for the Hyper-v we have to purchase enterprise license so, for any other client license should we have to purchase Enterprise client license or can we have standard licenses also?

Also Is there any changes in Netbackup Tier as Symantec was about the change it?

Thank you

1 x Enterprise Client per Hypervisor

1 x App DB Per Hypervisor

Above both should cover all guest VM protection that too with App-DB on top of that (Except SAP)

If SAP is virtulized it must be purchased seperately  (only SAP agent should do , as enterprise client covers Guest VM)

Hello Captain,

Thank you for your inline comments. I am now clear with the hyper v part.

For SAP, it is not virtualized and it is running on Windows 2008R2 in windows clusteroperating with two nodes.

Does this means i have to get 2 sap agents with 2 standard clients? 

Also there are 5 SAP systems running. does this also needs the SAP agent or just the client license?

And if the client license is applicable then standard license can be applied or enterprise license

Thank you once again.

SAP agent required per node (even if it's clustered)

Std required (per node) if backups would be on LAN based 

enterprise required if backups are meant to be targeted over SAN

add the count accordingly

hope this helps

 Cheers !!!
