Note
I used Orca (part of the MS Platform SDK) added a row to the Property table call "DEFAULTMEDIASERVER" plugged my DLO server name in the value field.

Used MSITRAN -g [orig msi] [modified msi] [name of mst] and used the resulting transform in the GPO.

Seems to be working out just fine for me.

Note
The DLO agent can be deployed using the vendor-supplied MSI file (located in the DLOAgent share on your media server):

VERITAS Backup Exec DLO Agent.msi

You must apply a transform for the installation to be successful.

The transforms I believe are based on MS standard language codes:

1031.MST: German
1033.MST: English
1034.MST: Spanish
1036.MST: French
1040.MST: Italian
1041.MST: Japanese
1042.MST: Korean
2052.MST: Chinese (Simplified)

If you don't specify a "DefaultMediaServer" in HKLM\Software\Veritas\DLO\Client and/or HKLM\Software\Veritas\DLO\2.0\Client the agent will display an error on logon. I have posted an ADM file which will hopefully appear in the Lockdown section.
