How to create Backup Exec on CAS enviroment

I have an environment running 3x MMS and 1x CASO.

Communication between MMS and CASO seems to be fine. I can see them on line on Media Server tab from CASO.

What I'm trying to achieve is:

Create a backup job either from MMS or CASO to use a device (robotic library tape) physically connected to CASO.

I can successfully create and run backup jobs from MMS or CASO but only using local devices.

All MMS and CASO are running Backup Exec 12.5.2213.0  SP1
Network is a mix of Windows 2003, SP2 Standard Edition and R2 Storage Server.

Many thanks,

I'm sorry, but I'm not sure what the problem is. You say you can create jobs to local device, so I suppose that on the CASO server you can create a job to the library attached to the CASO server?

BTW, Backup Exec can only back up to local devices. I.e. a backup to a tape drive will always be done from the server where that tape drive is attached to. Meaning that if you back up data located on another server, that data will be pulled across the network.
