This standard server management license (ML) allows one file server to be protected by a server running System Center Data Protection Manager 2007.
One server ML allows for protection of one Operating System Environment (OSE). In order to protect multiple OSEs on one server, each OSE must be licensed separately.
An enterprise ML is required for protection of server applications such as SQL Server, Exchange Server, and SharePoint Server. Enterprise MLs are not available for donation through TechSoup Stock, but may be purchased through Microsoft's Charity Open Licensing programme. Each server or OSE requires either a standard or an enterprise ML, but not both.
