Backing clustered SQL 2005 using backup Exec 12

Hi guys, can someone guide me how to backup a clustered SQL 2005 database using backup exec 12?
I'm assuming I need to install remote agent on both nodes on the SQL servers. Is this similar to installing remote agent for normal servers? Just need to input the SQL agent license key on the media server? After the remote agents are deployed, I can see the MS SQL databases on the virtual SQL server ip and backup as per normal? Thanks

Yes - install the agent on both nodes and back up SQL through the virtual server name. Any clustered files are backed up through the virtual servername, files local to the node are backed up via the node.

Hi, from the notes, it talk about installing Backup Exec on the cluster servers. But I am only installing the remote agent on the sql clusters. Can I just install the agent on each node of the cluster and backup sql database through the sql virtual server hostname and files through the individual server hostname? How about restoration of a whole sql server?
