If I am purchasing Backup Exec 11d and I use Volume Shadow Copy is there a reason I would want to purchase the Active Directory Agent  for Backup Exec? Could I not just get the AD backup from the shadow copy?

Yes can get all you need with the canned BE server agents.  Bbut you have greater flexibility in your restore if you purchase the AD agent.  With that said, I have not needed it to date.
