Backup Exec 9.0 on Win2k server will not back up remote WinXP
Posted on 2004-03-28
I am trying to back up a folder on a Windows XP machine from Windows 2000 Server with Backup Exec 9 installed. I have Remote Agent for Windows Servers installed, but it will not see the XP machine when I do the remote install for 'Remote Agent for Windows Servers'.
I tried connecting across the network from the client and ran setup from the RANT32 folder but nothing seemed to happen after the install.
If I try to backup from Veritas and point the job to the XP machine, Veritas throws an error that the Remote Agent is either corrupted or not installed on the remote machine. The contents of the 'C' drive on the remote machine are greyed out.
I removed 'Remote Agent for Windows Servers' and reinstalled it. I checked off the 'Remote Install' button. When it came time to select the XP machine to install the remote agent, no computer showed up. Do I need 9.1 in order to do this?
