new server install

I'll go ahead and apologize in advance, as I'm new to Backup Exec.  I recently inherited support of one of our remote offices, and have installed a new server.  The old server (running Backup Exec 10) is connected to a library via SCSI, and I am trying to get the new server included in the existing backup schedule.  I have tried installing the Remote Agent and the Backup Exec program, but have been unable to add selections from the new server when choosing what to back up.  I have also tried pointing the new server to the old using Connect to Media Server.  While that does connect, it won't let me make selections on the new server.  What do I need to do to get the new server included?  I can't seem to find anything in the manual that works.  Again, I apologize.  We've been using Tivoli at the corporate offices.

Thanks In Advance!

So you have added a new server at that site and want to include it in your Backup Plan?

In  addition to installing the Remote Agent on the new server, you must also add a Remote Agent serial on the media server

Since v10 is End-of-Life, I'm not sure where you could get a license.  You could try the Auction sites (EBay, Craigs List, etc)

That makes sense.  I'll see what the plant's IT budget looks like.  I'd like to get them on something newer (and preferably software that I've used).  Thanks, Ken!
