Tapeware Question

I have just purchased a Certance 20GB Tape Drive for our system backups. It comes with Tapeware XE (ver 7.00SP4). Of course now I have to upgrade to get Tapeware to backup everything I need. The tape drive and the software is installed on a Windows 2000 workstation. I need it to backup two Windows 2003 Servers. From what I've read I should be able to purchase two Tapeware 7 Client Server licenses.  Can someone verify that this will work? I have used Veritas in the past, but am new to Tapeware.

Thanks
Mark

You need tapeware master server to use the with client..:

TapeWare Client Server must be connected to an existing TapeWare Master Server and will not function as standalone backup server or support attached tape devices.

Is the Master Server something else I have to purchase or does Tapeware XE (ver 7) function as a Master Server?

I think the XE edition is the desktop edition only.. Tapeware does not provide their full fonctionality software with purchased tape backups.. Tapeware Xe doesnt even exist anymore I think.. they advertise it as tapeware DR.. it's version 7 anyways..

Hi Yan_west, thanks tips,

The XE version is the same as version 7
As you said it doesn't have full functionality besides backing up what is on the machine the tape drive resides on. For our setup we have to upgrade the XE version to a master server and get a server client license for each server.
