I wanna with this topic to figure out if my installation path of Backup exec SBS 2012 is correct regarding my servers sollution:
1º Servers Sollution all are 64 bits
2 Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition Physical
1 Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition Physical
1 Server SBS 2011 Premium Vitual
1 Server Standard 2008 R2 Standard Virtual
The two Enterprise server are configured as a cluster for hyper-v failover clustering
The SBS 2011 has Exchange, File Server and Sharepoint inside
The Physical Standard has HP SIM Manager and Virtual Machine Manager
The Vitual Standard has the SQL Server wich manages all the databases at the organization.
2º Backup exec installation path
Backup exec server installed at the SBS 2011, and all the agents are at all the physical and virtual servers
My question is, that this installation is it correct or is anything wrong like for instance the BE server should be at another server that not the SBS.
BE should be installed on a physical server if possible...at all times. You're going to get better support, both from Symantec and from any hardware vendors. Put BE on the HP SIM server...the version of SQL that will be installed by HP SIM won't clash with BE either.
For BE 2012, there is no requirement to have a SBE OS to install the BE SBE edition. The restrictions are that you cannot add any Agent for Applications and Databases licences and you cannot add more than 2 remote agent licences. The second restriction means that you can only protect at most 3 physical servers.
So regarding the last comment from Pkh the best and correct installation is :
install at the physical 2008 Standard the BE server and install at the two hosts the agent and backup what is inside them the host resources and the Virtual resources, am i write wih these new thougt?
