I'm using VERITAS Software's VERITAS Backup Exec 8.0 to back up my Sun Microsystems Solaris workstations. Occasionally, the workstations are invisible to my backup server. I assume that the problem lies with Backup Exec's agent software. Do you know of a workaround?

The most recent version of Backup Exec's UNIX agent software fixes the problem you describe. You can download the patch from the file downloads section at http://support.veritas.com/menu_ddproduct_bewnt.htm.
