Are there any plans to provide an ExecView replacement/analog for present or future versions?

One of the questions that repeatedly comes up on the board is "How can I let my Backup Operators monitor BackupExec without giving them Domain Admin rights?"

Ken! After a bit of inquiry, what I heard back from the product team is that, unfortunately, the only features in Backup Exec today that help in this area are Restricted Public/Private Login Accounts and the BE Audit Logs. Neither of these fully address your concern about supplying Domain Admin login rights to backup administrators. However, the product team is investigating on additional security-realated features for future Backup Exec products.
