Special Installation Instructions

This section contains additional installation instructions for this hotfix.

Remote Agent for Windows Servers - 32 bit
After installing this Hotfix to the Backup Exec 9.1 media server, install the Remote Agent for Windows Servers (RAWS) to all of the remote computers protected by Backup Exec by following the Remote Agent for Windows Servers installation procedure in the Backup Exec Administrator's Guide. If RAWS is installed on a SAP R/3 computer, or on a x64 bit computer or 64 bit (Itanium) computer, see the Special Installation Instructions below.


Remote Agent for Windows Servers (RAWS) - 64 bit (Itanium)
After installing this hotfix to the Backup Exec 9.1 media server, you must reinstall the "Remote Agent for Windows Servers" to all 64 bit computers being protected by Backup Exec. To reinstall the Remote Agent, type the following from the 64 bit computer:

msiexec.exe /p "<path>\RAWS64.msp" REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=omus

Note 1: <path> = path to the \Backup Exec\NT\Agents\RANT64 directory on the Backup Exec media server
Note 2: This service pack can only patch previous installations of the Backup Exec Remote Agent 64bit (it does not patch the original installation source files for the Remote Agent for 64 bit computers). This service pack places a "patch" file (RAWS64.msp) in the \Backup Exec\NT\Agents\RANT64 directory on the media server. If installing the Backup Exec Remote Agent for 64 bit computers to additional 64 bit computers in the future, run the command above after the initial agent installation to install the patch.


Microsoft Cluster
Before installing the hotfix to Backup Exec 9.1 media servers on each node of a Microsoft cluster, stop the Backup Exec services using "Cluster Administrator".


San Storage Option
Before installing the hotfix on a Backup Exec XX.X server that is using the SSO option first make sure that there are no backup or restore operations running on any of the media servers in the SAN.
Apply the hotfix to the primary SAN SSO server first then to all of the secondary servers.


Agent for R/3 for Oracle
After installing this hotfix to the Backup Exec 9.1 media server, you must reinstall the "Remote Agent for Windows Servers" to all SAP R/3 computers being protected by Backup Exec. To reinstall the Remote Agent, type the following from the SAP R/3 server:

msiexec.exe /p "<path>\SAPR3.msp" REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=omus

Note 1: <path> = path to the \Backup Exec\NT\Agents\R3 directory on the Backup Exec media server
Note 2: This service pack can only patch previous installations of the Backup Exec Agent for R/3 for Oracle (it does not patch the original installation source files for the Agent for R/3 for Oracle). This service pack places a "patch" file (SAPR3.msp) in the \Backup Exec\NT\Agents\R3 directory on the media server. If installing the Backup Exec Agent for R/3 for Oracle to additional SAP R/3 computers in the future, run the command above after the initial agent installation to install the patch.
