Backup Exec with DLO

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi,

I have tried to search the Support for documents on deploying DLO with Backup Exec. I only found this documents,

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH83388

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=HOWTO21792

1. May I know can I backup the the data from the desktop/laptop directly to tape or I must put it in a disk staging first?

2. Is there a document on how to deploy DLO with Backup Exec or the deployment is just like any typical BE deployment?

Thanks in advance.

DLO only ever did Backup to disk (even when it was part of Backup Exec)

If you want the DLO data on tape using Backup Exec  then you have to in effect setup a complete backup of the DLO server so that you get the user data and the DLO Database.

Sorry I am not sure what documentation exists for the latest standalone DLO version and how to back it up but it should be similar to the older versions.
