Is there any harm in Installing Backup Exec -- latest version -- on Windows 2003 DC? This DC is an additional DC with no FSMO roles. It has enough resources,  for example 4 GB of RAM. Thanks.

We have the latest version of backup exec running on our domain controllers and opted to include all the system states (Sysvol, AD, etc. . . ) Never had a problem We run it no earlier then 9pm no later them 7am so it doesn't interrupt system performance when users login.

Thanks. Is BackupExec 11d or 12? How many users you have?

We are using BackExec 11d with approx 200 users. One other thing to consider is the fact that Veritas creates this temp file that can grow large so make sure you have some spare harddrive space. Might not be a issue on the DC not in my case anyway  but on the data servers with TB's of data I seen it grow to 1gb
