Backup Exec SAP Agent to be installed on a Linux server?

Created: 05 Dec 2011 | 3 comments


My media server is running Backup Exec 2010 R3 on a Windows 2008 OS.  I have purchased & installed the SAP Agent license on the media server.

I have an SAP server that is running on Suse Linux OS.  I have installed Backup Exec RALUS on the said server.

Does anyone know if Symantec has an SAP Agent that installs on a Linux OS such that the backint and biparam.ini files will become available and I can configure the SAP backup jobs from brtools to backint and, using the biparam.ini file, pass the data to be backed up onto the tape library connected to the media server?

I cannot find any information like this in the Backup Exec Admin Guide.  That document is very Windows-centric.

Please help.  Thank you.
