What is RSM Database?

I have the following in the backu log:

RSM Database cannot be backed up because the removable storage service is not running? Does this mean that I have not install a agent?

Re: What is RSM Database?

No disable the service and you should be good, there was a registry hack for this issue but i dont recollect, i am suprised Veritas has not responded so far on this issue Smiley Wink,
