Purchase an Symantec Backup Exec 3600 Appliance License

Created: 04 Dec 2013 | 4 comments

Hello everyone!

Someone knows do I need to buy a license for Symantec Backup Exec 3600 Appliance separately from Appliance?

I mean if I have already buy the Appliance (for example Essential Protection Edition) need I to purchase an license for it?

Thank you

Yours respectfully,

ILYA

Hi,

You can contact the Symantec licensing department or a reseller to get what you need.

They will be able to assist. However, the appliance comes with a specific version of BE pre-installed so you shouldn't need to buy 1 at all.

Thanks!

You should receive a document regarding the Essential or Total protection License for your appliance.

hi Ilya

BE Appliance comes with license bundled in it  (Essential/Total)

Ref: Licensing Guide for comparion between Appliance Suites

You may need to buy license in a-la-carte if appliance you bought had essential suite bundled. 

a-la-carte offers Enterprise Optino (CASO, LEO etc.) NDMP etc.

More details can be found on licensing guide.

Hope this clears your doubts

 Cheers !!!
