Netbackup NEVC License

I have 2 sites A & B. In site A I have Nutanix AHV with 3 cpus. And 2 Hyper V cluster each with 2cpus. I want to replicate data from site A to B and also able to restore from B in case master server in A goes down. In this case I will need 5 NEVC license. Correct? I will deploy 1 master/media in each location. Will I be able to use DPO license within 5NEVC license to create MSDP at booth location for AIR?

Re: Netbackup NEVC License

If you mean that the Hyper-V cluster consists of 2 nodes, each with 2 CPUs, it means that you will need 4 licences for the Hyper-V cluster.

Extract from Licensing Guide:
Cluster Environments - NetBackup licenses (servers, clients, agents, and options) are required for all nodes of a cluster.

So, you will need 7 NEVC licenses in total. 

Each NEVC license includes the following:

  • 1x Enterprise Server WLS Tier 4 license
  • 1x Enterprise Client WLS Tier 4 license
  • 1x Data Protection Optimization Option (DPOO) license
  • 1x Application/DB Agent WLS Tier 4 license

So, yes, these licenses will enable AIR between sites. 
(For AIR, DPOO license is needed for both the source and target domains.)

Best to discuss licensing requirements with your local Veritas office and/or reseller. 
The NetBackup licensing guide is unfortunately not publicly available.
