Remote Agent for Windows Systems

A CPS uses the Symantec Backup Exec Remote Agent for Windows Systems (Remote Agent) to access System State information for backup and restore. Remote Agent is an optional component and should be installed on any CPS Business Server that needs to have its System State protected. Remote Agent should also be installed on the Protection Server and Continuous Management Service if they will be protected by Symantec Backup Exec.
