Backup exec license

I am buying BE 16 server. reseller tells me I need LEO option for tape drive. I have a Dell 114x dual tape unit. See's as two separate tape drives. So I believe support for this is inbuilt to serve lic and do not need the extra license. can you confirm.

Actually this is not true, LEO applies only for tape libraries with robot (autoloader), but Dell 114x is an external device with 2 distinct tape drives without an autoloader, so my opinion is that LEO is not needed. It is like 2 internal tape drives although externally connected and internal tape drives are included in the server license.

No. The base license only entitles you to run 1 tape drive in your tape library. For each additional tape drive in the tape library, you need a LEO license
