Can a tape drive on a remote server be used if Veritas resides on a different server?

I already have Veritas version 9.1 running on a server using an internal tape drive and also an external tape drive. I would like to include a new server into our backup cycle. Question is, do I require a new copy of Veritas on the new server or can I use our existing copy to backup the remote server using a tape drive attached to the new server? I know I can daisy chain tape drives on the existing server where Veritas already resides but if I did this would it affect backup performance?
