symantec backup exec restoring

Hi, i have a question, i was told by various L2 and L3 network engineers not to rely on backup exec for a COMPLETE restore including sql EXACTLY the way it was and that i would have to backup and restore manually.  TEither way if symantec HAS the sql agent or not.  Is this true and what is the best simplest way to backup sql? thanks
