Backup Exec 2012 requires Credentials for Backing up Linux Servers?
What is the purpose of an Agent that creates a Beoper group that root is a member of, if in the end you still must supply credentials to backup that server? I have Backup Exec 2012 and I have installed the RALUS agent on a remote Centos 6 Linux Server. To backup this server I choose Add from the Backup and Restore tab under the Server section. I then choose Add Linux Server, Establish trush, and I am then asked to provide credentials for a member of the Beoper group before it will back up the Linux Server to My Windows based Backup Exec Server.
Why must I provide credentials? Isn't the point of an agent to handle that? Is there another way?
