This issue has been solved. See solution.


quick check, just for confirmation on licensing.

1- 2 unit of cluter Hyper-V host Windows 2008

2- 3 unit of guest Windows 2003 R2 Ent. Edition (just file server-no app)


1- full backup of hyper-v guest machine

2- to perform GRT backup & restore individually files of guest machine

License option:

1- 2 unit of Backup Exec 2012 for Hyper-V per host

2- 3 unit of Backup Exec 2012 Agent for Windows


Is the license option is correct? or

I do not have to buy Backup Exec Agent for Windows?

Thanks in advance.

No.  You don't have to buy the RAWS licence.  When you buy the Hyper-V agent licence, you are entitled to load RAWS on any number of VM's hosted on the licenced host.

Yes, but only for files and folders because you do not have the agent for applications and databases.
