Backup software in parrallel.  HP Data Protector & Symantec Backup Exec 10d & 9

Last Modified: 2010-10-05
Hi All,

I am putting in a new HP Data protector backup system for a client.  They currently are running a mixed site : Novell 6.5 w/GroupWise, Windows 2000, Windows 2003 with SQL 2000 and 2005 as well as a HP Unix Box.  Their current backup software is Backup Exec 9 for NetWare & 10d for windows.  

We are moving to HP Data protector D2D plus HP Mirroring for the DR Site.  These are dedicated box's (HP AIO 1200 w6TB Storage).  

My question is: While we are installing/migrating to the new backup software can the Symantec software be installed and running in parallel (not synchronies backup).  So to clarify, only the software will be installed.  Backup jobs will run concurrently, not consecutively.
