This is a question regarding Agents, Licensing, and configuration.
I have a clustered file server. A management server running Backup Exec12.5 and a replication server running Replication Exec.
All servers are attached to a FC SAN Storage provided by an HP EVA4400.
All connections to the storage ar FC through 2 x Brocade FC Switches.
Cluster nodes are running 2008 Storage server.
Management server is running 2003 64bit
Backup is to MSL8096 Tape Library using backup Exec on the Management Server.
The tape library is FC attached.
Backup Exec is connected into a central CASO server.
What is the best way to backup the cluster nodes (ie over the fibre channel storage).
What licenses do I need on which servers.
What agents do I need to install on which servers.
I would rather not add any clustered services if possible
The replication server is not really part of this issue, it just uses the storage.
Thanks, questions and suggestions welcome.
I have asked our hardware supplier, but they are good at sales...... need I say more!
