    The agents and BackupExec have to be at the same level, so you'll either have to buy new licenses for BE 10 agents or downgrade to 9.1. I'd suggest buying the extra licenses...

    are there any improvements to ten for the exchange agent or ofa that i can justify the purchase. also do you know anything about the web console, I noticed it on the install as it being an option but I couldn't find it anywhere on the veritas site or searching the web. I'm just curious cause i love all of my web consoles for all of my systems.

    appreciate the help

I always found the Exchange Agent was relatively trouble-free - so I can't tell you if much has changed there. And finally, I'm afraid to say that I've never bothered with the web console. I've always used Remote Console...
