Does this software come with the AOFO option as a standard feature now? (I remember in previous releases, it was a paid for option). If it is included now, can you provide a reference on Symantecs website for the info? (I couldn't by the life of me find the information)
If it does, I'll have a follow up question in regards to the differences between the open file backup options (as I noticed quite a few are there).
No. As I said, AOFO has been free for a couple of releases.
If you have any problems with AOFO, you should post it as another discussion and we can take a look at it.
Based on experience with BE2010 so far, the AOFO definately free. However, we do notice that if we do a push install from BE media server, we will have the option to install AOFO + BE remote agent. If we install directly (run BE binary CD or RAWS folder from BE media server), we will only have the BE remote agent option to install.
Anyway, both methods will not have any impact turning on AOFO when setup Backup job
