Backup Exec Agent deployment on server


We have a Backup Exec recovery Infra having one backup exec recovery server (Central management server - "MangServ1") and 17 client servers on which I am installing the agent to protect them.
One of the server (Server1) is not in domain.It's in a WORKGROUP.
I am able to add the server1 in the group and able to connect to the server.
When I try to deploy the agent on Server1, it gives the error "Cannot Deploy the Agent to Server1".
It seems it's unable to authenticate.

Is there any other method to install the agent remotely on a WORKGROUP server.

C:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\Agents\RAWS32 is probably what your interested in (this is the just the 32bit remote agent for windows systems)
Did this work for you?  This is the way i have done it and i know it works normally!  I suppose if you can't authenticate from the workstation computer you may need to copy the files over to a hard drive, but this will make things a bit more complicated, but can definitley help you to do this if this is your only option.
