Is there a way to include an ftp server in our backup jobs using an agent (since our ftp server is not in the domain)? It seems like a simple ftp backup option should be available within BackupExec instead of requiring a clunky set of scripts or 3rd party applications. What solutions have you implemented to backup a remote ftp server?
Here is our current hypothetical solution:
BackupExec 9.1 Server has a 3rd party (insecure) ftp program that schedules pulling files to a local folder that is backed up by BackupExec to tape.
Am I crazy to refuse to accept this kind of work around for a simple ftp server backup? If I am then what automated ftp applications do you recommend that support ftps and have a secure way of storing the login credentials? Thanks in advance.
