    Hi,

    as far as I understood the licensing system you need 19 (for 18 agents and your machine) licenses...

    I think the workstation version would be your choise. It is much cheaper than the server version and has the same "remote features".

    Hi,

    sorry...you are right, the agent is only for the Enterprise Server, but you can boot up the system with the agent disc and remotely backup the linux machine then. TI Workstation supports the following file systems: FAT16/32, NTFS, Linux Ext2, Ext3, ReiserFS, and Linux SWAP.

    Due to the price-difference...this should be worth thinking about.

    after thinking about it (3sec) :) no its not good.
    becouse of automatisation reasons its not good and downtime.

    there has to be a solution for licensing linux agents without to pay $900

    its too much just for the agent

    Very simple

    When you buy the enterprise version 1x
    And want to deploy lets say 10 agents (you can do so without any serials)

    BUT you do need to have 10x TrueImage Workstation to get the license to deploy the agents!

    OK linux agents can be a different story. But they told me that for the windows agents I need to buy Coporate workstation for every workstation i deploy an agent to.

    Acronis is this true? And if yes is it fair?

    to jeremy:

    Yes it´s true and unfair. Today I realized that for the 1st time, true!

    One full license per Windows Agent! To me, this is not in the sense of an Enterprise product!

    If I would have known this I would´nt have purchased this product.

    It is 999 € per Agent!!!

    to manu28

    i dont think you need for every agent the enterprise version 990 euro.


    you buy 1 enterprise license and for every windows agent 1 workstation license.

    so it is
    990 euro for the windows enterprise version
    xx euro for the windows agent
    and
    linux agent is free. (included in the enterprise version)

    can some one from the Acronis team help us if this is correct?
