    Try this:

      On the Fedora boxes, set up a cron job to tarball the directories
      you need to back up.

      Set up a Samba share, and toss the backups into there. Or set up a
      share on the box that is running Veritas, and have the cron job toss
      the tarballs there.

      Have Veritas back up those shares across the net.

    That should get you a temporary fix.

    For a more permanent and less expensive solution, look into Amanda,
    which you already have on your Fedora disti.

    Have you contacted Veritas & if so, was their response useful?
