Hello Wangui,

AFAIK Symantec Backup Exec and HP D2D Backup System are two different product from two different companies. I do not see any integration here.

May I know what exactly you are looking for? Do you want to use the HP device as a destination for backups taken using Backup Exec ?

Thanks,

-Sush...

Hope this piece of Information Helps you... and if it does then mark this response as Solution....!!!

? Check the HCL...the D2D system is indeed supported, and therefore integratable...

Hi, I have a setup running with an HP D2D backup solution (D2D2504i) and there are no additional licenses required as long as you configure the device with 1 virtual tape device, no other licenses are required.

If this response answers your concern, please mark it as a "solution"

Thanks for that. Quick one - What if I configure it to NAS? Would I need additional licenses or will it just 'save to disk' as usual?
