Symantec Backup Exec for NetWare can be remotely accessed via a graphical console for Windows; this tool is entirely java-based. But there is a solution to make it executable on SLED10.


Copy the Backup Exec directory from c:\program files from the windows system to the SLED system.

  • rename long names of directory with short names (i.e be)
  • Create a launcher on the desktop with the following command:
    java -jar <backup exec path>/LIB/clientUI.jar

for example:

java -jar /soft/be/LIB/clientUI.jar

The console is fully functional!

That's all!
