Installing Backup Exec with the CASO option on
a Veritas Cluster Server
The Remote Agent is
automatically installed on all the nodes in the cluster. If this
installation of Backup Exec will be used to back up remote servers
outside the cluster, install the Remote Agent on those remote
servers as well.
To install Backup Exec with the CASO option on a
Veritas Cluster Server
Install Backup Exec as an
managed media server on all the nodes that you want to include in
the cluster. All installations must target local drives. Use the

If the managed media
server contains locally attached drives, create a drive pool that
contains all the locally attached storage devices on each node to
use when failover occurs. This ensures that jobs can run on the
storage devices attached to the failover nodes.
If the Backup Exec
Central Admin Server Option is not installed, then install the
Backup Exec Remote Agent for Windows Systems on the local drives of
all the nodes in the cluster.
