Can I ask from a low tech laymans perspective, if you use backup exec to backup your virtual machines (predominantly windows 2003 and 2008 server) , 3 questions:

1) Possible an administrator could accidentally miss a server when determining what to backup? How could you identify this kind of issue from within backup exec? Is this common or pretty rare?
2) Possible for an administrator to miss parts (i.e. volumes) of a server when determining what to backup? How could you identify this kind of issue from within backup exec? Is this common or pretty rare?
3) When you add a new server to the domain, is it automatically backed up by backup exec, or do you need to manually set up a job for it?
4) In backup exec what is the name of the central managment console that configures and monitors all the jobs?

IMHO BE is not an intelligent software, nothig is automatic.
Each Job must be set up carefully to include everything that must be backed up.
Network backup is a serious business and must be accorded due dilligence for it to be helpful.
