The Symantec Backup Exec for Windows Servers Remote Agent for Linux or UNIX Servers (Remote Agent) is installed as a separate, add-on component that enables Windows Server network administrators to perform backup and restore operations on Linux and UNIX hosts that are connected to the network. This agent must be running on these computers before backup or restore operations can be performed.
When you install the Remote Agent for Linux or UNIX Servers on a Linux computer, you also install the Remote Media Agent for Linux Servers. However, you must provide a separate license key for the Remote Media Agent for Linux Servers if you want to use that option.
When backing up data using the Remote Agent, Backup Exec enables you to protect data using the following backup types:
Only full backups are supported with the Remote Agent when using the Backup Wizard. Selecting any other method of backup through the Backup Wizard will still result in a full backup being performed. To specify differential or incremental backups using modified time, make the selection from the backup properties window.
