No agent will install on the Celerra. Simply point BE in a selection list to the Celerra as follows: \\IP_Address\ShareName and you'd be able to back it up. First you need to disable NDMP as per the TN below:

or instead of Backup up over CIFS (with an Agent for Windows license installed on the media server)

Consider investigating the NDMP Option
