Symantec BE 2012 licenses (software)

I need a solution for backup, which includes Symantec BE 2012 software.
 The scenario is as follows:

 • the main server is Windows Server 2008 Enterprise, and he would be the backup server
 • On it there are 3 Hyper-V virtual servers to be backed up (2 are Windows Server 2003 Standard, and one is Windows Server 2000 Standard)
 • There is another physical server on which Windows Server 2003 Standard, and which should also be backed up
 • Backup to work on the NAS device

What kind of Symantec BE 2012 licenses (software) should be acquired.

You'll need one regular BE license for the media server (which sounds like it'll be on the host).  I would suggest getting the Hyper-V license to backup all of the virtuals.  However, if one of those virtuals also consists of SQL, Exchange, or AD, you may want to consider getting one of those licenses for that as well so that you can do brick-level restores.
I think a regular BE license is all that you would need!

you can just back up the necessary files on your virtuals if needed; as rebuilding it would be that difficult.  

If you have the budget; then minoru7's advice would be best.
A single license of backup Exec 2012 Small Edition provides total backup and recovery protection for one server, including application protection for SQL, Exchange, Hyper-V, SharePoint, and Active directory.

Additional remote servers (up to two) can be easily protected by purchasing an additinal small bussiness Edition Agent for window, Agent for Linux, or Agent for MAc per physical server, depending on your server operating system requirements.
