Hello,
To anyone who can provide a solution for me, I only have 35 points left but I will give an A grade. I really need an answer.

Ok...
We have a SBS2000 server and a NetWare server. They are both on the same network connected to the same hub. There is an external Tape Backup connected to the SBS2000. I want to be able to back up both servers from the tape drive. Can this be done? I was wondering how 2000 handles backing up other servers...more specifically a NetWare server? I really appreciate anyone's help..and I wish I had more points to give.

Thanks in advance,
Jenn

If you can mount a share to the Netware server from the Windows 2000 Server, you should able to to back it up without any problem.

Otherwise I would look at another backup software such as Veritas Backup Exec.

Keep in mind that that will only back up the file system and not the NDS.

2000's backup is not meant to be an extensive, powerful program.  Just keep jmiller47's comments in mind - I would seriously recommend going with Veritas as a backup solution.

If I use the Veritas backup software will I be able to backup the Netware server using the tape drive attached to the 2000 server?

Right. You will most likely need the Backup Server Software, and the netware agent. You would really need to call them, tell them your whole environment, what is critical, and then they will tell you precisely what you need to make sure that you are safe. In most cases, they will even help you with the initial setup free of charge if you are having problems.

Furthermore, you can download the product from their web site and try it for 60 days.  And should you decide to buy it, you just enter the codes, no need to reinstall.  But be warned - as already recommended, contact veritas to determine EXACTLY what you need to make this work.  The trial is an All-or-nothing thing - meaning you can try EVERYTHING it can do - it's all included in the trial.  But as soon as you enter even one code, there is no remaining trial of ANYTHING for it.  So you either have the appropriate licenses or you can't use that feature...
