Backup Exec ver 11.0 not showing admin shares in selection lists

Running 2003 R2.
When using Backup Exec ver 9 it was possible in the selction lists to mark files in the admin-shares (c$ and admin$) on the Clients, so if the clients havn't installed the remote Agent it was still possible to make backups of certain files (just running slower without the remote Agent).

Have installed ver 11.0 rev 7170, and now it is not possible to see the Admin-shares on any of the Clients, only client-defined shares shows up.

Is it a "Feature" in ver 11, or have I done something wrong ?

Thanks in Advance

So, you are saying that in ver 9, you didn't use any remote agents on your clients?

Yes, on some Clients no installed remote Agents.
A few Clients (with heavy backup demands) had the Remote Agent installed.

Funny. I have never gotten BE to work without agents on any remote. Maybe there was some fluke that allowed you to do that, but I don't think it is possible. Even if it was, I am sure Symantec would have closed that loop hole in that they can make more money off the agents.

Hi again.
Sorry for the late reply, but I have tested, tested, tested......
and I can't get Backup Exec 9.1 to show the Admin-shares.
So I guess You must be right rbarnhardt.
