Not able to get Linux Agent installed under Gentoo

Last Modified: 2013-12-06
I currently have Symantec Backup Exec 12 with Remote Agents installed on a Windows Server, I setup the samba share from a linux server and pointed the Backup Exec to the \\share on the linux server.  However, it will not backup the data on the folder.

The error it gives is as follows:
Backup- \\hydrogen\Sales Sales share
Unable to initialize Remote Agent

I've followed the instructions on the Gentoo Wiki for Linux Remote agents with no avail, is there no way to make backup exec just backup w/o the remote agent installed, maybe just copy the data to tape from the share or something of the sort?
