About adding computers to the console

Before you can begin to manage backups of computers on a network or a remote location, you must first add computers to the server and database so that they show up in the console. Adding computers to the console is a streamlined process that involves the installation of Backup Exec System Recovery and Management Control software on client computers. The following overview describes the tasks and processes that are involved.

  • Optionally create packages of products such as LightsOut Restore or Backup Exec Granular Restore. (Packages for Backup Exec System Recovery Manager, Management Control, and Indexing Server are already created for you.)

    See Creating packages for an Easy Installer .

  • Optionally create an Easy Installer that includes one or more packages.

    See Creating an Easy Installer .

  • Remote users navigate to the Backup Exec System Recovery Download Center Web page and click the name of the Easy Installer to download and install. Or, you use your existing logon scripts to deploy the Easy Installer onto computers.

    See Downloading an Easy Installer by end users.

    See Deploying an Easy Installer by administrators.

  • Management Control reports to the Backup Exec System Recovery Manager server. The Computers tab on the Manage page of the console automatically updates with detailed information about the computers. Each computer is now integrated and under the management of Backup Exec System Recovery Manager.

After computers are added to the console, you can define and assign backups to those computers.
