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?
