BackupExec 2012 Remote Admin Console

Created: 23 Apr 2012 • Updated: 23 Apr 2012 | 2 comments

Can I install the Remote Admin Console for Backup Exec 2012 only on MS Server?

I get an error MSG when I try it in Windows XP.

Hi,

I've installed it onto Windows 7 on my laptop and it installed fine. You can do so, but bear in mind it isn't supported in the SCL, so any issues with it, and you will be pointed to the BE 2010 SCL in order to comply.

For all intents and purposes, it needs to be on Server.

Thanks!

Yes.  Quoting from page 2 of the SCL.

5. The Remote Administrator can be installed on any operating system listed in the "Backup Exec Server Operating System Compatibility" section.
 
Since that section only list server class OS'es, you need to install your remote admin console on a server class OS.
