Services & Requirements

Created: 21 Apr 2008 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 2 comments
Can anybody tell me if all services of Symantec Exec 12 should run using Domain Admin Account or under local system account of the server itself?
 
 
Secondly, what are the port and firewall requirements to install Backup Exec Client on client machines from the Server?
 
 
Thanks!

It's best to create a dedicated service account for BE. During the installation process the account will automatically be granted the required privileges.
The list of what services are installed, and the account they use is at http://www.backupexecfaq.com/articles/concepts/what-services-does-backup-exec-add.html
 
I'm not sure about the answer to your second question.
