We need to copy data from a NAS to tape via Symantec Backup Exec 2010 R3 software.
The job is completed with exceptions. It said cannot find remote agent from the NAS and AOFO(Advanced Open File Option) initialize failed.

The job status icon shown a yellow exclamation mark now. I want to make it a green check mark.

Since all data are backup success. Is it possible to make the Backup Exec software to ignore that specific warning and make the final job status icon be green check mark?

Many thanks.

look like remote agent not installed properly or License is not availible in BE server...
you can uncheck Advanced Open File Option, Double click on job and uncheck Advanced Open File Option Advanced Open File Option
you can also install BE agent on target server + add key in your BE server with Advanced Open File Option....

Unfortunately, I cannot install remote agent to the NAS, it is the network storage embedded with a linux base console.

Because the backup job need to use AOFO to backup file server(may contains opening file during backup) and System State, i want to keep AOFO options for that.

Any specific actions should i take for handle Network Storage Device backup?
