I have Symantec Backup Exec 11d for Windows Servers Small Business Server Suite.   When I look in Help/About .../License Information I see that "Advanced Open File Option" shows "Yes" under both Licensed and Installed.  However "SBS - Advanced Open File Option" shows "Yes" under Licensed but "No" under installed.    Does that mean I need to install the latter option?

Yes. You also need to reboot the server once AOFO has been installed to take effect.

How?  Under Tools/License Keys and Installation  Advanced Open File Option appears installed and there is no "SBDS - Advanced Open File Option" to install.  Also, when I am setting up a job I see that the AOFO option is present so I was thinking that perhaps the way it is listed in the Licenses info is misleading.  Are "AOFO" and "SBS - AOFO" the same thing or two different things?

oops - above "SBDS - Advanced Open File Option"  should be "SBS - Advanced Open File Option".
Same thing. By your comment above it sounds like it is installed if you can see the option present. Test it.

Citacomp - ah, so they are different things.   Thanks for the picture which make it clear.  I don't have another server so I don't need that option for now.  Any idea how to install it when I do need it in the future?

Commented:
Unfortunately, I don't know for sure.  I would hope that it is installed automatically with the remote agent.  At least with current versions of BE, AOFO is included with the Remote Agent for Windows Systems.
