Requirements for clustering Backup Exec in a
Microsoft Cluster Server
The following scenarios
must be followed if you plan to cluster Backup Exec:
Symantec highly recommends that you use the default
database instance (MSDE) that Backup Exec installs if you plan to
cluster Backup Exec.
Symantec also supports using a remote SQL Server
instance to host the Backup Exec database. However, if you plan to
use this scenario, review the following:
Only one installed
instance of Backup Exec can be installed into the remote SQL Server
instance on a clustered node. All other installed instances of
Backup Exec in the cluster must use the default Backup Exec MSDE
must run the Backup Exec cluster wizard on the cluster node that
uses the remote SQL Server instance.
