About configuring Backup Exec

During installation and prior to first use, you configure several Backup Exec features, such as a default logon account, database information, and audit log settings. Configuring Backup Exec lets you standardize Backup Exec before jobs are created and run.

You can perform the following initial operations:

  • Configure logon accounts.

  • Set the default Backup Exec logon account.

  • Create new Backup Exec system logon accounts.

  • Copy configuration settings and logon information to another media server.

  • Configure audit logs.

  • Configure database maintenance.

  • Configure and organize columns in Backup Exec.
