About the Remote Agent for Macintosh Systems

The Remote Agent for Macintosh Systems (Remote Agent) is installed as a separate, add-on component that enables Windows Server network administrators to perform backup and restore operations on Macintosh computers that are connected to the network. This agent must be running on these computers before backup or restore operations can be performed.

After the agent is configured, the Macintosh computers are ready for backup.

When backing up data using the Remote Agent for Macintosh, 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.
