When you install the Agent for Linux (Linux Agent), Backup Exec creates the beoper group and adds root as a member. Any Linux user that you add to the beoper group gets the necessary permissions to back up and restore the servers.
However, if an NIS server is detected during the Linux Agent installation, Backup Exec cannot create the beoper group. You must create the beoper group manually on the Linux servers on which you want to install the Linux Agent. You must create the beoper group before you start backup and restore operations. Otherwise, connections fail between the Linux servers and the Backup Exec server.
