About installing the Enterprise Vault Agent

The Enterprise Vault Agent is installed locally as a separate, add-on component of Backup Exec. To back up all Enterprise Vault servers, the Enterprise Vault Agent must be installed on each Enterprise Vault server in your environment. In addition, the Enterprise Vault Agent must also be installed on any remote computer where Enterprise Vault components are installed. If the Compliance and Discovery Accelerators are installed on remote computers, the Enterprise Vault Agent must be installed on those computers too.

Note:

You cannot back up Enterprise Vault databases to devices that are attached to a computer on which the Remote Media Agent for Linux Servers is installed.

You can install the Enterprise Vault Agent in the following ways:

  • Install it automatically from the Backup Exec media server as part of a Remote Agent installation to the local Enterprise Vault server. After you finish the installation, you may need to configure the Enterprise Vault Agent to publish itself to a media server of your choice.

    See About publishing the Remote Agent for Windows Systems to media servers.

  • Install the required Enterprise Vault Agent license keys on the media server.

    After you install the license keys, you can push-install the Backup Exec Remote Agent to all Enterprise Vault servers and the computers where other Enterprise Vault components are installed.
