The Managed Server option is

The Managed Server option is part of the base BE.  It does not need a seperate licence, but it is useless unless you have a CAS. To define a CAS, you need to purchase and install an ESO licence on one of the media server and then define it as a CAS.

Hi I started on new virtual

Hi

I started on new virtual machine and i uninstall Backup exec on the physical server.

So I have

Bkp21005: VM with Server 2012 R2, Backup Exec 2014 SP2 with CAS and no storage

Bkp21004: VM with Server 2012 R2, Managed Backup Exec 2014 SP2 and dedupe storage

Bkp21003Smiley Tonguehysical Server with Server 2102 R2, Managed Backup Exec 2014  SP2 and dedupe storage

I would Bkp21004 backup data on his dedupe storage and duplicate this backup on storage Bkp21003

To do that you have to share dedup storage Bkp21003 with Bkp21004 but it does not work
