Hello all, I recently got moved into a network admin position at my company, nearly all of my experience before this has been with web design/PC hardware/and SOHO networks. Now I'm on a network with 9 servers and I could use your help, My boss purchased REV disks because he wants to move away from tapes, and he also purchased Symantec backup exec 11d. The only problem is, the installation guide provides almost no information (for a newb like me) and I can't find much help in the online help files. My (rather stupid) questions are, can I install Symantec backup exec onto the server from my machine?, or do i need to physically access the server and load it from there? Also, does the server that it will be installed on need to be brought down and restarted? Thanks alot for any help I can get

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

From a Backup Exec product manager at Symantec: In answer to your first question on whether you can install Symantec Backup Exec onto the server from your machine. The answer is yes, you can install Backup Exec remotely from your machine. Check out the “Installing Backup Exec to remote computers” section of the admin guide. It begins on page 87. Your next question regarding if the server needs to be brought down and restarted, the answer is a base installation of Backup Exec does not require a reboot, however you may be prompted for one. Some Agents and Options require a reboot (i.e. Exchange, Advanced Open File Option, etc.) Also, for future help with Backup Exec feel free to visit the Backup Exec moderated forums and other info online at www.backupexec.com.
