I'd like to understand GRT. According to the Backup)Exec_2012_Agent_for_VMware_TechnicalFeatrue_Brief.pdf, it states:
it is not necessary to have the Agent for Windows Servers (AWS) installed to the vm in order for granular files and folder recovery to be possible. However, having the agent installed to the virtual machine is required in order to recover files and folders directly back to the source virtual machine.
Optionally, or if the AWS agent is not installed to the original machine from which backups were captured, files and folders can be reovered to a local directory on the Backup Exec server, and moved back to the original virtual machine using other methods.
I don't see how this works. I have the Agent for VMware installed and I've enabled GRT on a VM (but not selected any of the 4 GRT features that you require the agent for applications). This VM does not have the AWS installed. When I try to restore, I see no option to resote individual files/folders. From everything else I've read, it seems that the AWS has to be installed on the VM in order to use GRT. So what's the story? Is the techincal feature brief incorrect?? Under waht circumstances can you utilise GRT without the AWS installed on the VM?
I also saw in another post that you can install as many AWS agents on VM's if you have the Agent for VMware licensed installe on the host. is this true?
Thanks in advance!
