Hi All,
 Thanks for the response (too many people to mention). Basically we have:
1) Commercial solutions
	Veritas Netbackup and Legato Networker
2) Free solutions
	AMANDA (only suggestion) or scripts

Apparently we have a site license agreement to get Legato at a 'low' price
(Mark, you are right I should have checked the license page first) so I'll
go with Legato.

Thanks again all
