Do you have a remote agent installed on the other servers?
If the servers are not listed check the remote agent is running without errors.

I have a micro tutorial on BE 2014 that is a basic overview. There are also so others that are for both 2012 and 2014 as they are similar.

I dont have remote agent on the other server, but i do have Backup exec 10d installed on that. Can i still install 2014 remote agent on that?

Yes. It should upgrade the agent if you push it from the 2014 installation.

without an agent, you cannot backup additional servers.
you can add the newer agent, but it will stop the original backup exec from working as the media server wont be able to connect to the newer agent installed on it.
