I have some question about application class 1 lincense. I have installed around 400+ sql in commvault and if i look to my License summary then i see like 6 sql clients onder te tab Application Class 1. And that not what i want because its using client license.
On the sql client i have instal only sql software and after full back i have released license for file system.
I do find Mirosoft Sql server on Components in the Application Class Licenses for Application class1. But why another 395 installed sql clients are not listening in license summory onder Application class 1 ?

Thank you for the question, we will need a little more detail to understand fully.
It is expected that a physical server running SQL agent will consume an App Class 1 licence.
If you have a VM running SQL and performing AppAware backups, then the App Class Virtual licence is consumed instead.
So, it really depends on the client machine, whether this is physical or virtual and if AppAware is configured to protect those clients?
@Stuart Painter ,
Thank you for your answer. They all are vm's and not physical server. And i am doing only sql backup normal not a AppAware backup. What kind of information do you need more so i can check?
Depending on the licence model you have, these VMs may be licenced by VM instance or by Hypervisor socket - and so not consuming App Class 1 license.
The few clients that are consuming App Class 1 may be either physical servers or not covered by another licence, e.g. VM or socket.
If you do and are running under this license and see the server listed under Application Class 1 list in the Virtual Operating instance please open case for support to investigate this further.
I was able to open the report, though it’s likely that it wasn’t fully synched/available yet earlier in the day.
Here’s the section he is looking for:
Virtual Operating Instances 0 44 N/A
I can see that your servers are all listed under Application Class Virtual (small screenshot below).
Is this where you’re seeing thats erver?
I have been looking at the report you provided and I would like to know if your only concern is that there are discrepancies in how the licenses are being used or if you have a larger concern? Example: If you have enough licenses purchased.
@Egor Skepko , let me know the case number once you get one created.
Thanks everyone the probleem is solved. The issue was that vm where sql was installed was not detected by VSA. Because the vm name(hostname) where sql agent was installed was different from the vm wich was detected by VSA. I juist reinstalled sql client in commvault.
