About installing the Remote Agent for Macintosh Systems

Use the Backup Exec installation media to do the following:

  • Install the Remote Agent for Macintosh Systems (Remote Agent) on a local Macintosh system.

  • Push-install the Remote Agent to one or more remote Macintosh systems. If you push-install the Remote Agent, the RSH (Remote Shell) is used by default. Symantec recommends that you use SSH (Secure Shell) instead. To use SSH, you must enable it before you install the Remote Agent. See your Macintosh documentation for more information about SSH.

When the installation is complete, Backup Exec saves the install log file to the following location on the system on which the Remote Agent is installed:

/var/tmp/vxif/installrams <unique identifier number> for installs

Note:

Some characters may not appear correctly in the terminal session during the installation. This error occurs when the system location uses a non-English language character-set on the computer on which you install the Remote Agent. You can switch to another location setting of the same language to try to resolve this issue.
