To expand on what RahulG wrote, make sure the exact versions and update/service pack levels of the operating systems you use are on the software compatibility list (SCL). Be aware that when using Backup Exec you cannot install the latest service pack without losing support. You have to wait until Symantec adds it to the SCL which often takes well over a year.

As an example, referring to your list of systems, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 is supported, but as per today only up to Update 2. If you want to run the current version RHEL 6.5 or one of its two predecessors then Backup Exec will not be supported.
