What does the yellow triangle with the exclamation point mean?

What does the yellow triangle with the exclamation point mean? I am seeing this next to a server name in the selection list when setting up a new backup job. v11d

BE remote agents push a client install to the server. Log onto the server that has the icon, look for the Symantec Backup Exec for Windows Servers on the program list and select the Backup Exec Remote Agent Utility.

On the tabe named 'publishing', put a check mark in the "Enable the remote agent to publish information to the media servers in the list". Hit OK.

Marksw provides the solution - which is to enable publishing.

The yellow exclamation mark symbol is an indication that the media serevr has not received publishing/advertsing information from the remote server recently. If the mark remains in place for too long (default = 14 days I think)  then the server will no longer show in the Favorite Reecources Section of the selection list.
