Which products to backup Windows and Linux machines?

Created: 15 Apr 2011 | 1 comment

I have a copy of Backup Exec Server Suite, purchased from Dell, which gives me the main console (Media Server?) plus Remote Agent for Windows Systems, which is all working fine.

I now want to be able to backup Linux systems as well...so what product do I need to get to do this? Is it possible to upgrade my current product to include a Remote Agent for Linux (i.e. does this integrate into my current console), or is the Linux backup a separate product?

Thanks

I guess you have Quick Start Edition which has limited features.

In order to backup Linux OS you need Remote Agent for Linux.

Also you will have to upgrade the Quick start edition to a full version of Backup Exec.

To upgrade you just need to install the License key of the full version.
