How to backup the master server ?

Hi, I'm in the middle of deploying a replacement NetBackup 7.0 server hosted on Windows 2008 64-bit. On our previous NetBackup 6.5.6  master server we were able to install a NetBackup client and backup the master server itself. Now that any attempt to install the NBU client returns error message 'the netbackup client installation is not supported on 64-bit systems that have a netbackup server package installed' what is considered to be best practice to backup the master server ?

Thanks for any input anyone can offer.

NetBackup Client software has always been included in the Server software. No need for separate client software installation.

PLEASE ensure that you have a Hot Catalog Policy configured to protect the NBU databases. Catalog backup and restore is the only way to protect NBU databases.

You don't need an additional client license to backup the master server.
