Simple answer is that it's possible. You can specify to save resources on other computers across the network to the computer veritas is installed on.

You need to licence Backup Exec for both servers, and then deploy the Remote Agent to Server 1 (where the user data is stored).

You can then create (or modify) a Backup Job on Server 2 (with the tape drive in it) to include drives, directories, system state etc from Server 1.

The tape drive is not the thing that is licenced, it is the Server Software (Agent) - So you *do* need a further licence.

Deploy the server agent to the second server, and create a backup job on the server with the tape drive to backup the remote server.
