Problems backing up a Linux server with Backup Exec 9.1

I'm running Backup Exec 9.1 and it has the Unix agent which sees the Linux server I want to back up.  I'm told from the server owner what username and password I should be using, but I keep getting authentication failures.  I've configured the logon under logon accounts.  What is the syntac for the username?  Maybe that is my problem.  Is it like Windows servers where the username is: server\username?

have you checked your "agent.cfg" file on the linux server ?

I was told the agent.cfg file was correct by the server owner.  It mentions the backup server, and on the backup server I can see the files to select them.  I was not told however to use root, but a username that was configured by the server owner/admin.

...right.

I'm using root on mine... so whatever he gave you ... try   thatusername@yourservername

If you look in that file, agent.cfg,  it should have that information.

You should see something like this...

name YOURSERVERNAME
password YOURPASSWORD
export / as YOURUSERNAME [write_protected [password YOURPASSWORD] [include_remote]
tell 192.168.6.1 #/this would be your BE IP address
interval 30
