Yes, Chapter 17 specifically

Yes, Chapter 17 specifically "About backing up Microsoft Cluster Servers" can be used. In a nutshell, install remote agent for windows on all nodes of the cluster and then add the cluster using the virtual ip/name via the Backup & Restore tab.

Yes, you will be able to view the resources in the backup selection list.

To install Backup Exec on a

To install Backup Exec on a Microsoft Cluster Server

  1. Install Backup Exec on all the nodes that you want in the cluster. Use the same installation path for each node.
  2. From the node that you want to be the active node, start Backup Exec.
  3. Click the Backup Exec button, select Configuration and Settings, and then select Cluster Configuration Wizard.
  4. Follow the instructions on the screen.

On the Virtual Server Information screen, Backup Exec automatically displays a default name called BKUPEXECVRS for the virtual server. Type a new default name if you do not want to use the default.

  1. When the Cluster Configuration Wizard completes, create a storage device pool that contains all the locally attached storage devices on each node to be used when failover occurs. This ensures that jobs can be run on the storage devices that are attached to the failover nodes.
  2. Repeat step 5 for all nodes.
