Veritas will charge you for a robotics device fee as well as a drive

What version of Netbackup are you running?
For all versions below 3.4, Veritas does not
embed licensing in the software, which means
you *can* use the P1000 technically without
any problems, but if you are audited you'll
land into trouble.
Yes, you will need to purchase 2 tape drive
support licenses (for the software to support
your DLT drives). Veritas requires you to purchase
one license per tape drive.
If you already are using DLT drives, talk to
your Veritas Sales Rep- maybe you dont have to
spend those extra bucks.
There is no way to check what licenses exist
because the licenses are only on paper- not
installed on the system.

requirements, however Veritas does have licensing requirements to be
able to use a library.

Yes, this is absolutely true. It needs to be licensed so that
NetBackup can
appropriately address the features and functions thereof. Contact your
