RMALS vs. RALUS

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I'm confused. What "Remote Media Agent for Linux Server"(RMALS) does? What will happen if RMALS and RALUS are on same Linux server?

RALUS is the remote agent for Linux, Unix, etc.  and RMALS is RALUS plus the ability to backup to a device attached to the remote Linux, Unix server.  For example, with RMALS, you can backup the Linux remote server to a tape drive attached directly to the Linux server.

You always have RALUS and RMALS on the same server because they use the same program.

Thanks pkh.

So on Linux I can do LAN-free backup using BE, right?

And, if the tape libraray attached both to BE server and RMALS, and there is SSO license, how can I know the backup data go through LAN or SAN?

I am not sure whether you can use SSO with RMALS.
