Backup Server needs access remote client's admin$ share?

Hi,

just a simple question.

In order to backup a remote client, do you need to have access to admin$ share from the backup server to the target client?

In my scenario, I have a dedicated backup server located in the DMZ zone to backup all client servers that are located in the DMZ.
According to company policy is to disable admin shares on all DMZ servers.

Will this pose a problem in backing up data using Backup Exec?

As long as you have full domain admin & local admin rights on the server you are backing up, there should not be any problem while doing a backup!
