Installing additional Backup Exec options to the local media server

You can install agents and options when you install Backup Exec. However, if you have already installed Backup Exec and want to install additional options, review the documentation for those options to ensure that your system meets all minimum requirements. The Backup Exec services may be stopped while the additional options are installed. If any active jobs are running, you are prompted to stop them, or to wait for the jobs to finish.

See Installing a custom installation of Backup Exec.

Note:

If you install Backup Exec through Terminal Services and the installation media is on a shared drive (network share) you must install using a UNC path. Installation by mapped drives is not supported.

If you installed the trial version or the Not For Resale (NFR) edition of Backup Exec, you can install trial versions of the additional options. If you have a licensed version of Backup Exec, you can use a trial version of most options and agents for a specified period of time.

See Installing a trial version of Backup Exec agents and options.

Note:

If the Central Admin Server Option is installed, and you want to install additional options on a managed media server, you can pause the managed media server. When a managed media server is paused, the central administration server does not delegate jobs to it. When the installation is complete, un-pause, or resume, the managed media server.

See Pausing a managed media server in CASO.
