I need to back up the AD, DC and Exchange from a Windows Server Standard 2003 to a Windows Server 2000 at a remote office via a Sonicwall VPN (currently active). Once I add the remote server (Windows 2000) to the W2k3 Server, how do I get it to back up remotely?

    Accepted Solution

    if you are using backup exec.
    On the windows 2000 server that has Backup Exec installed.
    you would select tools> install agents and media servers
    once the window opens select the next button then the Add button and manually type the ip address or the server name
    this will install the remote agent
    once the remote agent is installed
    select Backup then on the first page you will setup your selection list
    Expand Windows Systems>then the win03 server name
