DPM 2010 + HyperV licencing
Can anyone clarify exactly what licences I will need here;
I have 2 DPM servers
2 HyperV servers running various OSs including around 6 windows hosts.
5 physical Windows servers
Anyone any idea of how many DPM licences I will need as the 2 companies I have went to for information have said different things.

My understanding is that you should need this:
9 Windows Server Licenses, 2 for the DPM servers, 2 for the HyperV servers and 5 for the physical servers.
2 System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 Server ML Enterprise licenses to back up the DPM servers (license for the software is included).
2 System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 Server ML Enterprise licenses to back up the HyperV servers.
5 System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 Server ML Standard or Enterprise licenses to back up the physical servers depending on what they run. (Standard is fine for BMR/Files but Enterprise is needed for SQL/Exchange etc).
HyperV requires no additional licenses for 4 of less VMs per host.

Note that with the above model (2 licences for the Hyper-V servers), I believe you can only install the agent onto the Hyper-V hosts, not onto each guest individually. This could potentially mean less functionality if the guests are running SQL/Exchnage/SharePoint.
