Can Backup Exec 12.5 backup to a tape drive installed on another server?
Posted on 2011-02-10
We have a Dell PowerEdge 2650 with Windows Server 2003 that was running Backup Exec 12.5 that was backing up to a Dell PowerVault 122T and Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager when it failed. I have completely re-staged this server but unfortunately I lost 4 out of the 5 drives on this server. While trying to bring this server back up, I had to install SEPM onto our file server which is a Dell PowerEdge 2950 (Windows Server 2003 R2) so our clients could continue receiving Antivirus updates. When I got the PowerEdge 2650 up and running with 1 drive, I found out the hard way that Backup Exec has to be installed on the same server as SEPM. So here is my question:
Is there a way to run backups onto the Dell PowerVault currently installed on the 2650 from the 2950?
