Thanks for your help.  So what options are available to me with Backup Exec 2010 to accomplish a Linux BMR.  The previous admin left with no documentation on how to accomplish this basic DR task. With a New CIO breathing down my neck I would appreciate any assistance in this daunting task.   Thanks.

Well... for a linux server, Backup Exec allows backup/restore at the flat files level.

See Best Practices for Backup Exec Agent for Linux for more information.

Note: This technote also containts "Use the Linux Agent to back up user data and configuration files. However, because of the lack of open file handling support, Symantec does not recommend the Linux Agent as a complete system for disaster recovery."
