What license has the Bareos VMware Backup plugin?

The plugin itself is written in Python and licensed under AGPLv3. The vadp-dumper is licensed under AGPLv3 with a special linking exception according AGPLv3 section 7, in order to allow the linking of needed VMware libraries.

If you install the plugin using your Linux distribution's package manager, a couple of packages are installed to fit dependencies. Among them are redistributable libraries from the VMware Virtual Development Kit. These libraries are not open source and are under a proprietary VMware license.
