I just upgraded toBackupExec  2010R3 on a Win 2k8 R2  virtual machine with no problem. I currently have a dozens Ubuntu Servers I need to backup.I have installed a Ubuntu server 12.04 as a test machine. I have installed the RALUS (remote agent for linux servers) version 5204.4 on the linux server with the help from following link Everything went well.

When trying to creat a job from the BackupExec Media server I receive the following "logon Account Selection" pop up windows:



I  can successfully

  • ping the Media server from the Ubuntu server and vice versa.
  • logon to the Ubuntu server with username: root and with the same password set in the logon account selection
  • start VRTSralus service
