Agents I will see in Backup Exec 2010 when I deploy agents

We have the following agents in Backup Exec 2010:

Remote agent for Windows and Netware Servers
Active Directory Recovery Agent
Agent for Microfoft Exchange Server
Agent for Microsoft SQL Server
Agent for WMware Virtual Infrastructure

When I deploy agents to other servers what should I see? I only see the
following:
Symantec Backup Exec
Remote Agent for Windows Systems
DLO Maintenance Service

What SHOULD I see. I know the agents are installed. I know I am probably missing something (me) so let me know.

Hi Alan

Agents like Active Directory Recovery Agent, Agent for Microfoft Exchange Server, Agent for Microsoft SQL Server, Agent for WMware Virtual Infrastructure, or for for other applications don't actually exist as standalone agents in their own right. When you install an application agent, you add the license to the media server, which unlocks the functionality of the agent. There is no extra software to install, or need to redeploy agents. The remote agents interact with the API provided by the application developer.

Obviously remote agents for other operating systems, such as Windows, Linux, UNIX and MacOS X are separate agents which require manual installation. The Remote agent for Windows and Netware Servers comes along with Remote agent for Windows System and the DLO Maintenance Service.

Hope this helps!
