Backup Exec support for Lotus Domino 8.5.1

We've recently started using Symantec's Backup Exec here at work to backup our Domino Server.   I've wanted to do incremental backups for quite some time, and wasn't able to as the server I was using for my backups needed to be running DAOS (large nsf files with many, many attachments; over 65GB).  I've been waiting for Symantec to support Domino 8.5.1 ever since installing it.  I knew it was coming out this quarter, but could never get anyone to tell me a date.

Imagine my surprise when I found it on Darren Duke's Blog this morning that Domino 8.5.1 is officially supported for Backup Exec.

Here's the link to Symantec's site:  http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/339930.htm

You'd think that since Symantec knows I own a license for Backup Exec, and a license for the Backup Exec Agent for Lotus Domino, that they would at least send me an email.   I get lots of other email from them...
