Requirements for the Enterprise Vault Agent


Requirements for the Enterprise Vault Agent

Review the following requirements before you use the Enteprise Vault Agent.

  • You must create at least one partition on an Enterprise Vault server before the Enterprise Vault server can publish itself to Backup Exec.

  • You must install the Backup Exec Remote Agent for Windows Systems and license the Enterprise Vault Agent on any computer that hosts an Enterprise Vault component.


    The Enterprise Vault Agent uses the Remote Agent to back up all NTFS shares on a remote computer that contains Enterprise Vault data. However, if the Remote Agent is not installed, the Enterprise Vault Agent uses Microsoft's Common Internet File System (CIFS) to back up the data.

    For a device or a filer that does not support the Remote Agent, the Enterprise Vault Agent uses CIFS to back up the data. Symantec recommends that you create separate backup jobs when you want to do NDMP backups of Enterprise Vault data. You may see a significant performance improvement of NDMP backups with the Symantec Backup Exec NDMP Option.
