Is it necesary to remove old copy of BackupExec ?

We have upgraded the Backup Exec from Version 9 to 11.d.

We have installed the Linux Agent on the ESX Hosts. We would like to know is it necessary to remove the old linux agent before installing the new one ?

If we have to remove the old one, how to remove it ? This is because we are not familiar with Linux / Unix commands.

Thanks

I know with the Windows versions, it will upgrade when you do a remote push-out of the agents. I would think you can reinstall the new agents right on top of the old ones.

Yes, you are right. I just install the Backup Exec agent on the ESX Host and it overwirtes the old version.

Thanks
