Oh, where do I start...it has been a little while since my last post, and that is primarily because I volunteered for a new role within our department. My role now allows me to focus 100% of my time on issues that matter to you, and that is exactly what I have been doing since the beginning of the year! It is an awesome opportunity for me (and my peers who joined me), so that you will ultimately reap the benefits of our labor. I can say that there have been many long nights and weekends invested so far, and I know that the final results will yield many satisfied customers. That means more to me than you will ever know! It is the sole reason I volunteered, and it is what motivates me every day. Thank you for being a loyal customer!

So, part of my efforts recently led me to a topic which I have not covered before. That topic is using a custom SQL server instance with Backup Exec. We have supported it for many years now, but there are some impacts you should...

When your users are mobile, protecting their data requires applications that detect a network presence and copy the data up to the network for backup during a regular nightly backup job. In Backup Exec 2010 and earlier versions (going back to the 10.x days), a Backup Exec option called the Desktop and Laptop Option (DLO) did just that. If you purchased Backup Exec Small Business Server Edition, a limited seat DLO license was provided with the product. All other Backup Exec versions provided the option of installing DLO on a trial basis, or as paid-for option based on the number of clients (seats) you needed to protect.

With Backup Exec 2012, things have changed! DLO is no longer included when you upgrade to Backup Exec 2012. Instead, DLO has now become its own product called Symantec DLO 7. As such, transitioning from the earlier DLO Option to the new Symantec DLO 7 product, along with the migration of your DLO Option data, now takes on significant importance. If you are...

My name is Nick Elmer and I’m a developer on the Backup Exec Install Team. I started with the company over 13 years ago in support(during the Seagate Software days), then I spent a few years after that in our quality assurance team(during the VERITAS Software days), and finally, I transitioned into a developer role. I spend time these days working on the DVD Browser, DVD media, Cluster Wizard, Install Dialogs, Push Install, and various other install related items. My best strengths are security, networking and writing secure code. I enjoy what I do immensely! 

In the upcoming weeks, I will be posting occasional blogs on install related topics for Backup Exec. If you have items you would like me to cover, feel free to contact me with those topics, and I’ll address them the best I can. Some of the topics I hope to cover would be: 

How Backup Exec 2010 R2 improves the upgrade experience.
How your participation in the user experience program...
