Hi chris,

Thanx for reply.I am trying on window server 2003 R2 32bit.I know that it can't install on DC,bt at the time of insatlling it requires the information user name and password of domain.At that time which user name and password i have to provide there whether there is no domain on that system.


You basically use whatever

You basically use whatever admin credentials you need to use. Just because you are not installing onto a domain controller, it does not mean that you cannot use the domain admin credentials for the install.

Sym_System_Recovery_2011_10.0.0.40077 & DC


  I am trying to load Sym_System_Recovery_2011 on my one and only Server on my network which by Govt. requirements, has to be a Domain Controller.  The last computer that I added to my network took over 1.5 years to get cleared.  The only thing this Server is doing is connecting to a bunch of Classified Workstations and monitoring users.  The Server has Two 4 Core processors, so it has the power to do anything it needs to do.  I am now running Backup Exec System Recovery Desktop Edition on each Workstations.  The Backup storage is on the Server (Domain Controller) - 11 Tera.  Having each workstation doing its own backup to the Server, causes all kinds of Licensing problems for the Workstation Engineering Software.  How do I get the Sym System Recovery 2011 to allow me to load it onto my Domain Server and get some "Structure" into my WorkStation Backups?

Trying to get the Govt. to change the requirements, to use "Common Sense" is a lost cause.

Are you asking about the management solution? If yes, as stated above, you cannot install onto a DC.


Sym_System_Recovery_2011 & DC

Howdy Chris,


  I understand that the "Default" setup is not to allow the Backup Software to be loaded on a DC.  Normally the DC is heavily loaded, doing a DCs taskings.  That is not the case in my situation, my Server is sitting there most of the day doing nothing.  I was basically asking if there was a "Flag" I could set in my Registry, to allow the software to be loaded onto my DC.
