How to deploy Backup Exec 12.5 to Exchange 2007 SCC (Win2008)?

I'm having a tough time finding exactly how to deploy Backup Exec agents in this scenario.  I have an Exchange 2007 SP1 Single Copy Cluster (SCC) running on Winodws 2008.  I have a separate Windows 2008 x64 server running Backup Exec 12.5 (with all the latest updates).  Let's say the mailbox servers are mbx1 and mbx2, and the cluster name is mbxcluster.

How do I push the agent out?

Do I push it to mbxcluster?  Doing so seemed to only push the agent to whichever node happened to be active.

Do I put the agents on mbx1 and mbx2, and then when I go to backup, point to mbxcluster?  I've done that, but I get an error that the databases weren't mounted.

Any help would be appreciated!

In the past I have installed the agents on the phyical servers then pointed the backup exec job to the cluster virtual name, but this was in 2003.   I'm not sure how much this would change.

If you do it this was you can see the databases but you get "databases weren't mounted" when attempting to select?

Ok, putting agents on mbx1 and mbx2 and backing up the CMS is what I thought was the correct answer.  Thank you for validating that.  My issue with the databases turned out to be that I didn't put the Exchange MAPI CDO file on mbx1 and mbx2 as well, I had put on the Backup exec server itself.  Once I put it on the clients, I was able to run backups.
