The Remote Agent for Linux or UNIX Servers and the Remote Agent for Macintosh Systems must publish to a media server to get backed up.(Both of these options are referred to the Remote Agent.) During installation, you identify the media server to which you want to publish the Remote Agent. Backup Exec adds this information to the ralus.cfg file. The Remote Agent publishes information to that media server. When the media server receives the published information, the remote Linux, UNIX, and Macintosh computers appears in the media server’s backup selections. It is listed under Favorite Resources.
The Remote Agent publishes to all of the media servers that are listed in the ralus.cfg file. For each media server that the Remote Agent publishes to, you can specify a local backup network for operations. This backup network is between the media server and the Linux, UNIX, and Macintosh computers. Jobs are then directed to that local network rather than to a corporate network, so that the backup data traffic is isolated. As a result, other connected networks are not affected when operations are performed between the media server and the Linux, UNIX, and Macintosh computers.
The Remote Agent publishes the following information to media servers:
You can edit the ralus.cfg file to configure the following settings for publishing:
