This issue has been solved. See solution.


I have an symantec Backup Exec Server 2010 R3 with during offcie hours is doing nothing.

I was thinking of moving the Symantec Endpoint Manager 11 server to this server.


Is this OKE or should keep them seperated?

Are there any best practices for this?

I agree with above suggestions.

Adding to above, also check this :

About using Backup Exec with Symantec Endpoint Protection

So, overall, when installing SEP and Backup Exec on the same machine, you would have take care of 2 things -

1) Ports used by both.

2) Make sure you have enough Memory on the server.

Hope that helps!!
