I received 11 replies that said "NO" Solstice Backup comes with a "Server only" license which
means you can only back up the server (as a client) with limited functionality (see below).
I also received 1 reply that said they loaded it on 8 client machines and it was working just
fine? I think I'll go with the majority on this one. Thanks to all who replied!

Special Thanks to Bill Krauss ( who wrote:

It does not support any clients, and has limited functionality. If memory
serves me, you basically have to backup all the filesystems, they don't
allow you to configure it differently.

The Legato Part Number for the Server Edition to the Network Edition
upgrade is 2602-4U. This would give you support for up to ten clients. I
believe list price is ~$3500.00.
