VCB 1.5 with networker 7.4.3-Licensing question

Hi Guys,

I hp someone can give me an answer on this. I finally configured my VCB to backup full VM and file level of my VI3 infrastructure. But noticed that every virtual machine is consuming a client connection.

I was under the impression that under 7.4.3, they only take a license for every physical ESX host that is in your environment not for every virtual host. Do I need to by a special license for that ?

I called my EMC local sales Rep. And she does not have a clue of what I am saying (but she will get back to me. Don't they all say that ?).

There is a tickbox in the client configuration for the client to be a virtual client - tick that and it should use the VCB license...

Hello David,

Thanks for the info, I was wondering what is was for. Under Physical host, do I put in my virtual center hostname or the actual physicla ESX hostname that the vm is resided.

Missed the last point, yes you do need a special license - see page 14-15 of the release notes for Networker 7.4

ESX hostname, can be FQDN or short name but be consistent amongst all clients

Ok Got this back from my EMC local sales rep. You will definitely need a VCC license in order to get away with trditionnal CC license.

Cost: 2000$ USD each. ouch!!!!

Thanks for all your help people
