Data Protector licenses


Does it exist way to find out what licenses to specific agents are allocated ?

This command doens't answer my questions: omnicc -check_licenses -detail

I want to know what agents are using specific licenses.

    You can use switch -online to determine which servers are using the online backup for windows/linux/ux

    omnicc -check_licenses -detail -online

    In my DP A.09.09 doesn't exist this command switch "-online"

    Then you're stuck doing it the slow way :-(

    Take your cell_info file, import it into excel using delimited with space and use "" as single value. Then find replace "=-" to be left with agents and versions

    Then sort through the columns and identify any with agents that use online extensions (e.g. oracle8 / mssql / msese / e2020 

    Deduct any that are virtual client imports and see what's left.

    For vepa vmware it will count any esxi servers that the vepa host can see using command "vepa_util query --virtual-environment vmware --host <name of vc /as per DP clients list> --list-esx-servers"

    I counted hp-ux agents (about hp-ux online licenses) into cell_info file but my omnicc commands says:

    online extension for ONE UNIX system:

    licensed installed: 3

    licensed Used: 8

    additional licenses required: 5

    I'm awaiting that the licensed Used was 10, because the licensed Used are 8 ?

    Ok so I didn't fully understand what you are saying above. Lets look at this differently - what are you trying to achieve here? Do you need to make sure that used licenses is under 10? (I don't understand why you mention 10). The cell_info file contains all the info you need to work this out, apart from when you are using Virtual Environment for VMWare (and you can use the command I alreday gave you to work that out). You can't exclude clients that you know are virtual dns names, unless the cell_info file ALSO understands these are virtual dns names (e.g. with -virtual switch)

    You need to import this as a virtual client.

    1. Export the virtual clients (make sure you DON'T select uninstall SW)

    2. Make sure that main client still has /etc/opt/omni/client/cell_server file populated with cell manager name - if not, fix this then reload inet

    3. Import the virtual clients using command 

    omnicc -import_host <virtual dns name> -virtual

    Or if you want to do this via DP GUI go to clients tab, right-click clients, select import client then enter client virtual dns name and change Type to "Virtual host"
