As OES comes with TSAs AFAIK, as long as you don't switch the machinerunning BE to Linux, you should be fine.

Other than that, I have a few customers using Arcserve on Linux quitesuccesfully.

Re: Backup options for Linux

I don't know hoe BackupExec works, but for Arcserve, when running it
on
a NetWare server and backing up a remote NetWare server, you can use
an
agent on the remote server, or you can do the backup without agent. If

you don't use an agent, Arcserve simply does a TSA connection to the
remote server.
Now if OES/Linux has a TSA that behaves properly, Arcserve on NetWareshould be able to backup OES/Linux without agent using a TSA
connection.
Of course, this remains to be tested in practice.

Hi Troy,

We're in the same boat here, as we are moving to OES and use TSM.
Have you
heard any news on when the TSM client will be available? I also know
of
another large site that would be wanting an OES client in the future,
so
may be we can use this to up the priority?

Cheers

Phil

Good luck with that. When I went up the chain asking about linux nss

support, I got a firm "no comment". They wouldn't even say whether or

not it was in the works for a future agent rev.
