How to setup a backup server for backing up centOS and RHEL server using Acronis solution?

There is a plan to backing up 2 RHEL 5.2, and 3 centOS 5.5 servers. Using linux command, such as, rsync, is out of picture. I heard that Acronis Backup and recovery for linux server version 11.5 is suitable. BTW, how to setup the given backup software - Acronis? can i install this Acronis backup on the windows server? and how to configure backup schedules, etc? please show step-by-step.

Thanks in advance.

In this case you need to buy a higher version of Acronis B&R, the Advanced edition. You install this on the Windows version, and it will act as the server.
Then the Linux servers will act as clients, and hence need to have a license for an Agent. You can then install these agents as followed:

After they're added in the server, you can fully control them from the server console. Configuring a task is almost child's play, the wizard will hold your hand step by step. If not, detailed information here: http://www.acronis.com/en-eu/support/documentation/

Hi Kimputer,

Thanks for the prompted suggestions and articles. What I am going to do is download the the Acronis advanced edition and set it up in my lab to visualize. It may takes some time, however, I''ll update you about the status.
