Netbackup licensing

Hi all,

This is not a really a technical question but more on how to setup an alert email from OpsCenter. Is there any way to create an alert email to users/admin of netbackup for their netbackup licensing. I mean, the customer having TB license and then need to know if they have reach their limit. I have look into the alert policy but no alert for licensing. Please help.

Thank you

I don't believe there is a way to do this automatically currently as NetBackup license keys do not in many cases include the actual license quantity. Also I'm not sure if OpsCenter actually collects NetBackup license information; it can run nbdeployutil but as far as I know it doesn't ingest the resulting XLS data.

NB: Veritas have said they intend to change NetBackup license methodology to allow much more accurate reporting including usage vs. entitlement - I heard this is planned for NBU 8.2
