This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello I am new here and i need some help !!

I made a failover cluster on two servers (s1 & s2). On each server there is a virtual machine. Both servers share a drive via iscsi located on a third machine. Now I installed the Symantec Backup Exec (trial since i am testing) on another computer having the windows 2008 server 64bits. My goal is just to backup the two virtual machines ONLY.  I am stuck with 'where do i install the Symantec backup agent ? '' , is it on the two servers ? if yes how do i backup the VMs ? or is it on the VMs themselves? or is it on the third machine mentionned earlier ?

You install the media server portion on a designatged server. Once done, you can do a push-installation of the RAWS agent onto those 2 remote servers.
