When you install the Remote Agent for Linux or UNIX Servers (Remote Agent), Backup Exec creates the beoper group and adds root as a member. Any Linux or UNIX user that you add to the beoper group gets the necessary permissions to back up and restore the servers.
However, if an NIS server is detected during the Remote Agent installation, Backup Exec cannot create the beoper group. You must create the beoper group manually on the Linux or UNIX servers on which you want to install the remote agent. You must create the beoper group before you start backup and restore operations. Otherwise, connections fail between the Linux or UNIX servers and the media server.
