I have always like the bacula software. I have not used it in about a
year though. This was on a w2k AD domain. The problem only I had using
it, was the MS agent. It had issues backing up MS systems files. I
just cron'd MSbackup to backup the system state to a SMB mount, and
used the agent for everything else. Also you will have to run the
agent as administrator or an account with-in the administrators group.

If your HP device will work the app "mt" it should work with bacula.
Sometimes it will require a bit of hacking.
