I got a bunch of replies. 

They seemed to be split 3 ways almost equally: 
  (1) Lauding VNB (it's great & covers everything), 
  (2) trashing VNB (more trouble and difficulty than it's worth), and 
  (3) "why don't you look at Amanda?"

Did end up with a good reference or two that we may actually contact who
are not too terribly far from us.

I actually am looking at Amanda as an alternative. However, since the NT
systems people are driving this, I don't want to be in the position of
imposing a solution and then having them point a finger at me. So, let
them choose Veritas (and eat cake too if they like). If they can get the
funding for it, it should be a reasonable solution. If it is a lot of
trouble to install and maintain, then it's on them and not on me. There
is no money for training for anyone.  ;,)
