Dear All,

             I am in a testing phase for the Backup exec 2010, when i run the environment checks before installation on the new media server

i got warning says "Backup exec remote agent for windows systems version 10.0.x is installed on this computer.Uninstall the remote agent before continuing the installation for Backup exec"

I already has a remot agent for other version installed on this server,I would like to install the new version on this server as well...is it Ok, or I should remove it before installation ??

Yes, that would be all right.
You can uninstall the current agent before proceeding with installation of newer one.

Hi Mostabdo,

If you want to try the new version, you should uninstall the agent of previous version before get ready for the new one, in order to don't mix functionalities or try to use another computer hardware. You could test it in many different ways and have 60 days license free.
