Install full Backup Exec 2010 on a different server then SBS?
Posted on 2013-02-05
I just had to rebuild an SBS 2011 box. I have it running as a guest on a Server 2008R2 host. I have the full version of Backup Exec 2010R3 with all the licensing for the agents (exchange, sharepoint, SQL, etc.) I also have the license for SBS.
My question is I don't want to put Backup Exec on the SBS box, as that box is an atrocity by itself already, I like to minimize the amount of software that is loaded on there. I want to install it on a seperate server, and then install the remote agent on the SBS box.
Has anyone ever done this, or has had any issues with this?
