Backing up Apple Mac Clients
I am currently putting together a backup routine for a client of mine.
They are going to be running Server 2012 with Backup Exec 2012 backing up the server to a tape drive.
On site they have 3 Apple Mac Pro towers. Can i use the Backup Exec instance running on the Windows Server to back up either the files (drawings, images etc) created by the Mac team saved on the Windows network or can I back up files directly from the mac's? Or both?
Hi, It is an add-on agent
It is an add-on agent so you are required to purchase it. It would come with a default 60-day trial.
If you have Mac files saved on the Windows file server, and this happens to be your backup server too, nothing stops you from backing up that data. No additional license is required.
If the file server is NOT your media server then you'd be required to purchase and install a Remote Agent for Windows Servers license (RAWS) before push-installing the agent to this server. From there you could backup the data.
