New job, new challenges (but at least I'm not ripping out Novell stuff anymore!).

I'm being told that two of our backup products here - Tivoli (agent) and Syncsort (agent) will NOT back up eDir and file rights. The suggested workaround is to dump flat files using Trustee.nlm and EmBox.

This is strange to me, since their cheaper competition (ArcServe and BE) do these functions easily.

Anyone have experience with these products, that can confirm or deny?
