Backup Exec System Recovery 2010 License query

Hi,

I have the following questions:

1. With an SBS 2003 R2 Premium server (SQL not used only ISA) If I buy the SBS 2010 BESR product do I need any Licenses at all? Some Resellers say I do and some not?
2. Another separate server windows 2003 r2 64 bit with exchange and SQL running. Again just boxed product or agents required?
I have some resellers say no and some say yes. The issue is that it makes the price somewhere between £ 400 - £ 1200.

I can get no clarification? Anyone any ideas? Do you only need the agent when backing up a remote machine? Also will restore anywhere work without licensing ? These are both for a DR Situation to get the machine back to alternative hardware asap.

Thanks,

For BESR  you will need a license for each server.

Is that the boxed product or boxed product + License for exchange and sql ? Does sbs make any differences ?

I believe that if you buy the Symantec Backup Exec for Windows SBS version you get a free BESR license.  What this allows you to do is get agent based backups of Exchange via Backup Exec (to tape for instance) and BESR.  This is only for the SBS version.  Keep in mind that BESR doesn't clear the transaction logs but this can be done via Backup Exec or a maintenance plan on SQL and ntbackup on Exchange.

Any additional BESR installs you will need a BESR license.   BESR licenses do not depend on the the underlying OS or applications, it's a one to one if you're buying BESR licenses independently.

BESR does not have any agents.
For the SBS server you will need a license for BESR SBS
How does the licensing of Backup Exec System Recovery (BESR) function on Windows  Server, Small Business Server (SBS) and Desktop Systems?
