Issue



One Remote Agent for Windows Servers license is included with all Backup Exec agents that require the license.

Solution



The Lotus Domino Agent, Microsoft Exchange Agent, Microsoft SQL Agent, and Oracle Agent include a Client Access License (CAL) to allow backups and restores of remote systems.
 
If one of these agents is being used to protect databases that are on the local server (the same machine that has Backup Exec (tm) installed on it), the Remote Agent for Windows Servers (RAWS) or CAL license that was included with the agent can be installed, and then the Remote Agent can be installed on one remote computer for backup purposes.

Example: If the SQL Agent is being used to protect databases on the local media server only, the Remote Agent can be installed to one remote Windows server so that the resource can be protected by Backup Exec.

If one of these agents is being used to protect databases that are on a remote resource, the RAWS should not be installed on any other remote computer.

Example: If the Exchange Agent is protecting a remote resource, the Remote Agent is necessary in order to perform remote backup and restore operations on that server. In this case, the RAWS should not be installed on any other Windows server.

NOTE: The compatibility of Windows NT Workstation 4.0 with SP 6a or NT Server 4.0 with SP 6a is only up to Backup Exec version 9.1. Backup Exec Version 10.0 and above do not support any Windows NT 4.0 Operating Systems. See the compatibility list for Backup Exec version 10.x in the related documents.
