Requirements for the Remote Agent for Linux or UNIX Servers

The following items are required to install the Remote Agent for Linux or UNIX Servers (Remote Agent):

  • The media server must have TCP/IP installed.

  • You must have a root logon account on the Linux or UNIX servers.

  • You must have the Backup Exec installation media.

  • You must enter a license key for the Remote Agent on the media server.

Note:

Some versions of Linux may require that you install the libstdc++.so.5 package.

See Troubleshooting the Remote Agent for Linux or UNIX Servers.

Symantec recommends that you use the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol when you push-install the Remote Agent to remote servers. You must enable SSH before you push-install the Remote Agent.

Backup Exec automatically installs the Remote Media Agent for Linux Servers when it installs the Remote Agent for Linux or UNIX Servers on a Linux server. However, you must enter a separate license key for the Remote Media Agent for Linux Servers before it is available for use.

See About the Remote Media Agent for Linux Servers.
