Windows Clients

Jump to solution
Hi All,

I have DP 5.0 running on N4000/HP-UX 11.00.

Environment:
HP-UX Servers about 20 numbers connected in a SAN with XP512 and Ultrium Library 6/60.

All my clients configured are HP-UX only.

Currently we are planning to add some Windows 2003/2000 clients to the DP 5.0 running on N4000/HP-UX 11.00.

I would like to know do I need to get any license for one or more Win2K clients. Give me the part number of the License and also give me the procedure of configuring the Win2K client for backup/recovery.

Thanks,

Sanjiv,

If you are using already existing libraries for the backup of the Windows clients, you do not need any new licenses. So you can take their backup (via the SAN) with your existing licenses.

You currently have 6 Unix/NAS/SAN drive licenses, so you can backup using 6 drives simultaneously.

If you want to use more drives at the same time (and you have the hardware), then you should add Unix/NAS/SAN drive licenses (part number B6953AA).

best regards,

Kurt

Sanjiv,

You do not need any additional licenses for the Windows clients unless:

-you are using a backup device connected to one of the Windows clients (B6963AA) and you are using all the Unix drives at the same time. If they are connected to the SAN, you can use your 6 existing Unix/NAS/SAN drive licenses. They can be used for a backup via the LAN as well of course.

-do you need applications to be backed up online (Exchange, SQL server, ...). Then you need a Windows online extension (B6965BA) for each server that has an application that must be backed up online.

-Open File Manager: you do not really need it, but for a file&print server it might be usefull. On Unix you do not really have files that are locked by an application, but on Windows this isn't the case. The following OFM licenses exist:

Open file backup NT/2000/2003 1-server BA153AA
Open file backup NT/2000/2003 10-servers BA153BA
Open file backup NT/2000/XP 5- Workstation BA154AA
Open file backup NT/2000/2003 Enterprise Server/NetWare Server BA155AA

But just to add Windows clients to your existing cell, no new licenses are required.

best regards,

Kurt

Hi Kurt,

Thank you for your reply.

I have configured separate library for each hpux server and the backup takes place from the server to the Ultrium Library in SAN. Data flow from server to Library directly not from network.

I want to do the similar setup from the Windows server too. I want to configure the library,robotic arm and the drives for the win2k servers so that the data flow from server to drive through Fibre and not through LAN.

I believe this is possible. Do I need any drive license for this setup?

Thanks,
