I have a Windows 2008 file server & have DFS set up. At this time I'm backing up my files with Backup Exec version 12.5. My question is, does Backup Exec have the capability to backup the DFS namespace? Is there anything special I need to do such as install different agents on other servers in my remote offices? Thanks

If you store the DFS namespace in Active directory then you should get this assuming you are doing full backups of your AD environment system state etc.
