I have upgraded our server to Backup Exec 12.5 and have installed the remote agent utility on the remote servers. Is there a way to verify the remote agent version on each server? Also, does the remote agent need to be manually installed on the BE 12.5 server or is it installed automatically with the upgrade to 12.5?

Thank you

The way I do it is:

Start to create a new backup job, then go to selections, then right click on the server in question then properties.  This will show the agent version number.

Everything you need on the backup server will be installed for you at the time of install.

You are right. Thank you. I found another way by finding the BEREMOTE.EXE under the BE folder,>right click,>properties and it will give the version of the Backup agent. Your way is easier and shows the status - Running or not.
