Me Too!I have the same issue
Product(s): Backup Exec - 2012, Backup Exec
Severity: Non-data threatening / major functionality
Status: Investigating/gathering information
Tech Note: More Information

If an appliance configuration is implemented where instead of another appliance being configured as a CASO (ESO Primary) server that a standard Microsoft Windows server running the Backup Exec core server license and the ESO license is used, then even though the appliances, configured as managed Backup Exec (MBE) servers, are fully licensed for the agents and options, the CASO server itself is not licensed for these options. This results in those agents being in evaluation mode on the CASO and, once the evaluation expires, potential problems with creating, editing or distributing jobs from the CASO to run on the Appliances.
