Installing RANW on Netware 4.11

Created: 23 Jul 2008 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 2 comments

Just got Backup exec for windows and trying to install the Remote Agent on our netware 4.11 server. From the Exec server (XP box with ver 12 SP1) I goto tools/install remote agents. I select the netware server and do the install. However I find that the install hasn't created the NLMS directory or copyed the NLM's across. No hassle. I create the NLMS directory manualy and then the NLMS are installed by the application (strange). 

 

I then run bestart and it says problems see the .fax file. I check this and it says this netware is not supported. This is despite the agent install from the Exec server saying that ver. 4.11 IS supported. :-(

 

Okay. so then I go get the latest ver 9.20 RANW from Symantic. I install this okay but STILL the bestart reports Netware version not supported :-(

 

HELP! How can I backup my netware server?!

 

Thanks

Netware 4.11 isn't support Backup Exec 12.  Support for Netware starts at 5.1 SP8 to 6.5 with Backup Exec 12.  Here is a link to the SCL http://support.veritas.com/docs/295304

Arrr.... I was confused by the Remote Agent install saying...

 

"Expends network-wide protection..... across Netware 4.x, 5.x, ......"

 

:-)

 

Do I loose much by using local agent rather than remote?
