Hi JustTryingToGetItToWork,

I think you are looking for the Backup Exec Remote Admin Console. Take a look at this Technote and see if it helps you.

Very good.

I do not have the installation CD however. Is there a 'download' available of the Backup Exec Remote Admin Console S/W?

There is not a separate download for just the Remote Admin Console. It is part of the Backup Exec Install as a whole (its a different install setting as can be seen in the technote provided above). So, in order to install it, you will need to download the Backup Exec DVD, then run the setup for Backup Exec, then select the "Remote Admin Console" option and finish the installation. You should use the same installation DVD as the Backup Server.

You can download the Backup Exec Installation DVD from File Connect. This technote may help you:

Hope this helps,
