    You might be able to make it work with the standard Windows CD, but you could have some issues and will want to test it in advance. For the best results use an SBS cd.

    If you're looking to restore the entire operating system, then no. If you just want to restore your data to a different box, then you can restore it to whichever Windows server platform you like as long as you have the remote agent installed on the other server.

    The remote agent in Backup Exec is the client that you install on each server you want to back up from your main backup server.

    If you have the Backup Exec CD, the administrator's guide should cover it all.
