What scale, like how many machines, total data to be backed up, time
window allowed, etc? Is price a sticking point? There's not enough

I have had sucess using Veritas Netbackup with NT4/W2K Solaris and HP-UX
all off the same Solaris server. Comes with it's own scheduler
accessable via a GUI or cli.
