Data Protector Licensing help (HP Library + Storage)

Need some help with licensing, tried to head the Data Protector Bulleting if someone could help I´d appreciate.

I want to backup de following scenerio:

- Two Servers connected to a HP MSA-2050 directly through FC (Image on the storage)

- Library MLS-2024 one Drive


Need to Backup SQL/Hyper-V in those servers, what do I need to have in terms of license to backup to LTO besides the Starter Pack? Do I need Dataprotector SAN Drive License and NDMP or all I need is Backup Online B6965BAE to backup Hyper-V and SQL?

Hello @cadumgarcia

Please refer to for more details. 

To start, Data Protector Starter Pack includes a license for one drive. 

To backup SQL and Hyper-V you should need Data Protector On-line Backup, at least one for each of these integrations. 

To understand better this license situation, contact your sales assist or sales team. They will give you more details.
