Symantec backup exec sees remote servers but only the C: drive

We are running windows server 2008 r2 and using symantec backup exec 12 for our backups. The backup manager is installed on SVR1 and has all the jobs scheduled and running.

However it is only backing up the C: drive and system state. Any other drives are not being detected. I have tried deleting the job and recreating and no luck it is still only showing the C: drive. I have also tried looking at the remote agent and there is no option to change which drives are shown on the backup server.

You mean in Backup properties you see only C: drive? Do the other volumes have the drive letters assigned?
Josef Al-ChacarSystems AdministratorAuthor Commented:
Yeah i figured it out. The drives are LUNS. They are showing up as drives but were configured directly from the NAS. IF the drives are configured in VMware then they are detected.

So i just have to do a separate backup for each drive. It's weird but it works.

Yes, that was my first thought but wanted to check if it was eveb simpler.
