Symantec Backup Exec 10d with Oracle Agent

I have Symantec Backup Exec 10d with the Oracle Agent installed on a Windows 2003 Standard Edition Server.  I have one 64 bit Oracle Server running on Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition 64 bit.  I need to be able to use my Oracle Agent to back up this database.  Does the Oracle Agent support 64 bit or do I need to purchase an additional agent, or Does Backup Exec 10d simply not support 64 bit Oracle databases at this time?  I already have the 64 bit remote agent installed but had to apply an update for it to stop giving me errors during the install.  I wasn't able to find an update for the Oracle Agent (if there is one....)


thanks,

Jude

After searching through Backup Exec 10d's technical specs, it wasn't entirely clear if the Oracle agent was 64bit compatible.  I did however see a hotfix that gives Yukon 64bit support for SQL 2005 agents.

Here's the info on this: http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/280204.htm

Your best bet would be to call Veritas and ask them.  They will likely try to push you to buy BExec 11.
