Backup Exec and Master Browser

This issue has been solved. See solution.


I am having an issue where my BackupExec server has been trying to be the Master Browser for the network. If I disable the Computer Browser on the server, will this effect the operation of Backup Exec?

Hi Stephen,

I've seen no requirements for the Computer Browser service to be started for BE to run.

Stop and disable it and see if this affects BOTH backups and restores, and if not, keep it off.
