Backup Exec 2010 – install Linux Agent

Posted by

I’m not that great at Linux OSses (or even just ‘Syntax’ for that matter) so each time I have to do something I need to go back to previous notes or cursing myself for hours when I didn’t do that same job before. Therefore I’m a freak at taking screenshots, pasting in a Word doc and save to C:\procedures 🙂


So here’s a HowTo for installing the Linux Client for Symantec BackupExec. If you know the steps it takes you no more then 5 minutes.

Prerequisite: mount the BackupExec Install DVD to the Linux server. Most of the time our server is a VM so for me it works best to put the ISO (temporary) in a shared datastore.


Step 1) Install the agent



Step 2) Start the agent



Thats all! Couldn’t go easier … if I knew what to do the first time 😉
