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.)
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.
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.
