    Re: Which Backup Exec version + optional features to use?

    I recently purchased 2 x 11d and 5 agents and they all work well and with the Ultrium drives. I was surprised that the agent backed up our SIMS server including the databases without having to stop the SQL service
    Thanks. I need this because we're installing CMIS soon.

    When I got my copy of BackExec 11D, I think it came with a couple of free agent licences, but it doesnt come with any SQL from what I saw, the eval makes it appear as if it does but when you licence with a real key it locks it off. I have not got an AD licence but it backups my AD though fine so who knows!

    I think the AD license is to use the ADAM stuff so you can restore individual objects, it still backs up the system state if you need to restore the whole thing.

    My 11d came with 5 included "Desktop" licenses which I took to meaning that it is able to backup workstations if required. I think it works in a similar way to the Agents though.

    As for the SQL license, I've checked mine and it doesn't mention anywhere that it's able to backup SQ Server databases but our SIMS databases are defiantly being backed up correctly. We are not using "full" SQL yet as I've not had a chance to install it yet so I don't know if this has any bearing on it.
