Backup Exec 12 Remote Agent for Windows - Workstation

Created: 19 Sep 2008 • Updated: 24 May 2010 | 1 comment


I have Backup Exec 12 installed on a Server 2003 SP2. I'm not able to backup any of the workstation's(System State & documents & files folder) on the network. Under Windows firewall "Backup Exec Remote Agent for Windows Systems" is listed under the Exceptions tab (grayed out) and unchecked. I've also created an exceptions for beremote.exe thru group policies, but still backup fails.

Is the Remote Agent installed and running on the Desktops?


Are they Publishing to the media server?
