You can add computers to the console by using your established client computer management software and deployment processes to install the software onto client computers. The Management Control component publishes information back to the server, which populates the Backup Exec System Recovery Manager console.
To have administrators deploy an Easy Installer
If you did not assign a role to an Easy Installer, the role defaults to Download All. The default user name and password is download. You should change the default Download All user name and password.
If your logon script detects that the expected version of Backup Exec System Recovery is already installed on a client computer, it may still run the Easy Installer. In such cases it uninstalls and then reinstalls Backup Exec System Recovery. To avoid this happening repeatedly at log on, be sure your script first checks for an installation of the expected version of Backup Exec System Recovery. It should then run accordingly.
If Backup Exec System Recovery already exists on a client computer before installation, any backup jobs (including command files) created by the user remain intact. Management Control publishes the user's backup job to the server and updates the console. However, the backup history is deleted.
After the installation of Backup Exec System Recovery, the computer restarts automatically after 60 seconds. Or, the computer gives the user the option to restart later. (The restart option is defined at the time you created the Easy Installer.)
