TL;DR How is the license counted for a VAW workstation managed by VB&R with a Server Backup Job? As a Server or a Workstation?
Here is my setup:
-VB&R 9.5 Update 3 Enterprise license
-VAW 184.108.40.2063 with both Server and Workstation licenses added to VB&R.
I need to centrally manage the backups of dozens of Windows workstations in VB&R. So, I created a protection group with all of the workstations. The problem is that for Workstations VB&R only allows the creation of Backup Policies, not Backup Jobs. The result is that the backup is managed by the Agent and that is not an option.
If I want to have the backup job managed by VB&R I need to select Server Type in the Job mode, which I would not mind if the license is counted as it should: Workstation. How is the licensing in this case?
Am I missing something? In the end, what I want is a centralized management place for workstation backups.
P.S. I find the documentation confusing:

- Code: Select all
Veeam Backup & Replication lets you create Veeam Agent backup jobs of both types (the backup job itself and backup policy) for the following types of protected computers:
•Microsoft Windows computers — computers protected with Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows
It does not mention Servers or Workstations, so is easy to assume both.
