Dear all. I need your assistence.
When I want to protect ONE SharePoint farm which consist of 3 servers I need to bye 1 license for Agent APPLICATION and DATABASES, and 2 additional licenses - Agent for Windows (it's from Licensing Guide).
The questions is:
Thanks in advance.
1) Additional Agent for Windows licenses are not required for these 3 servers which make up the Farm. The existing ones can be used to back up file data.
2) Verbatim from KB ~
The SharePoint farm resource container represents the entire farm topology in your environment, including all of the SharePoint resources that reside on a single computer. When you select the SharePoint resources from the farm resource container, you ensure that you select all available SharePoint resources for backup.
3) Only 1 Agent for Application & Database. However, if you plan to back up other SQL DBs (the ones which are not Sharepoint related), you would require another Agent for Application & Database for the SQL backups, else not.
I have one more question.
I have first farm of 3 servers - 2 servers APP and WEB (mixed), and 1 server with SQL database instance for this farm.
And also I have a second farm of 2 servers - 1 server APP and WEB, and 1 THE SAME server from 1st farm with OTHER SQL instance.
Do I need two licences for Agent for Windows for this DB server?
What number and types of licenses do I need?
