You will definitly want the open file agents and the exchange agent so you can backup everything you need.

The servers will just show up in your selection list and you will pick and choose what you want to backup.

The exchange server requires a bit more forethought.  You will need to decide if you only want to backup the information store or also the individual mailboxes at the brick level.  This would allow you to restore individual emails.  The drawback to this is that the more mailboxes you backup in this fashion, the longer your backup will take.

As for tape rotation schedule...

We do a Daily that is overwritten once a week.
A Weekly that is overwritten once a month
and a Monthly that is overwritten once a year.

We do full backups with no incrementals.  

The auto-loader will be able to be controlled from BackupExec.  You'll need to figure out how you want to set that up.  (ie tape rotation, retention, etc.)
