Backup Exec automatically

Backup Exec automatically take a backup of it's own configuration and saves it in DATA folder present in installation directory. CATALOGS folder will have the catalog details for all the backups taken. Create a backup job and choose DATA and CATALOGS folder to be backedup.

Which will save your license information. http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH37072 Thanks
