Thank you for your information, very helpfull.

This is the first time I am working with Backup Exec. Now, I have the task in installing a new CASO server in a wndnows 2008. Also, I will install backup exec 2012 on several Windows 2008 servers and have it managed by CASO. There is a learning curve, lots of unknown about the product and I would like to utilize all available functions within.BE.

Thank you
