Installing ArcServe 6 on Netware 4.1 SFT III

Has anyone installed Arcserve 6 on a Netware SFT III server? I am interested in what type of setup works best, what problems were encountered, etc. If there are problems, is it better to have a separate backup server to perform the backup of the SFT III server?

I would strongly recommend running your Arcserve on a separate runtime server.  I have 2 Compaq Proliant's running SFTIII and have had nothing but problems trying to get any backup software to run on them.  I also believe that Arcserve is _not_ compatable.  A year ago we were looking at using an Arcserve product and we were not able to do to SFTIII.  Arcserve will work fine if you install it on a separate server.  The only problem is, the extra traffic that is generated.  

In my personal opion, I believe the problems and costs associated w/running SFTIII do not outway the benefits.
