Backup Exec

How can I check which servers have installed with Backup Exec remote agent and pointing to the BackupExec server ?

Inaddition, I have an Exchange server that should install with Exchange agent to backup the Exchange Storage Group. However, in that Exchange server, I could only see the "Symantec Backup Exec Remote Agent for Windows System" and could see any Exchange agent. So how to check what agents are installed on the remote server ?

I dont think there is any Exchange agent .... the one you see works as an agent on the remote server.

No seperate agent to be installed for exchange, remote agent for windows is sufficient on client computer. Once you update media server with Exchange license , you should be able to configure and backup exchange databases.

Agent for windws utility will show details of media server and version details.

Just for your information, Only media server is backward compatitable. Running higher version agent on client computer is not supported.

Thanks. Under Tools -> Install option and license key for this media server, I could see the license key of the agent installed.

But, how do I know which servers are installed on my environment ? Is there a place to identify which servers are distributed with the agent ?

One more check, for backup of Exchange, SQL server, etc, only the corresponding agent is pushed to the remote server. No agent need to install on teh Backup Exec server, correct ?

No agent need to install on teh Backup Exec server, correct ? - Its default that it can speak to all agents on the hosts.

#1. On Backup Exec server, can I check which remote servers have been installed with Remote agent ?

#2. I can't get your point. Do you mean not agents are need on Backup Exec server ? The Backup Media server only need to install Backup Exec and remote servers are installed with remote agents.

Thanks

1. http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH15524 (As you can see in this article you can view the servers in the list)

2. Backup service itself works.

If you want to do a backup of media server you will need an agent.

RAWS (Remote agent for windows) is by default installed on media server. You don't have to install agent seperately.
