Issue



No license is required to protect Windows Workstation computer operating systems prior to Windows Vista with the Remote Agent for Windows Servers (RAWS)


Solution




Windows 2000 Professional and Windows XP Platforms do not require a RAWS License, but RAWS must be installed on the machines to be able to fully back them up. Windows Vista/Windows 7 machines require that RAWS be installed on them and a RAWS License for each Vista Machine being backed up.


NOTE: To protect a computer running Windows XP Home, the Backup Exec Remote Agent must be installed locally (Silent Mode) to the Windows XP Home computer. It cannot be push-installed to the Windows XP Home computer and the push install may also fail on XP Pro because of security/firewall settings. The procedure for the Silent Mode installation of the Remote Agent is given in the Related Documents section. The Windows XP workstation must be part of a domain, or guest-level share access must be disabled. Please refer to the Related Documents section for more information regarding Windows XP and disabling of force guest (guest-level share access).
