An installation of Backup Exec System Recovery Manager consists of several main components for managing recovery points on computers. It also gives you the ability to create and update Easy Installers of Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery (and other components, such as LightsOut Restore and Management Control) on client computers.
Note: Backup Exec System Recovery Manager requires the installation of a Symantec license key for full product activation.
The following table describes these main components.
Table: Components of Backup Exec System Recovery Manager
Backup Exec System Recovery Manager console
The Backup Exec System Recovery Manager console, which can be installed on any computer (Windows 2000 or later), lets you remotely run and manage backup and recovery tasks on client computers from a central location. It serves as the main interface to the Backup Exec System Recovery Manager server. The console requires Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 to run.
Backup Exec System Recovery Manager lets you create and update Easy Installers. Easy Installers are used to deploy software such as Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery and Management Control to one or more computers across your local area network or wide area network.
Backup Exec System Recovery Manager ships with several Easy Installers including the following:
Backup Exec System Recovery 8.5 (with and without a user interface)
Management Control 8.5
Indexing Server (optional; for Windows Server 2003 only)
Easy Installers are made available through the Backup Exec System Recovery Download Center Web page. The Web page location is https://<server_name or IP_address>:8443/DownloadCenter. This page gets created when you install Backup Exec System Recovery Manager. Users access the Web page to download and install the software onto the computer. Or, you can deploy the software onto client computers through a logon script.
Backup Exec Retrieve is installed at the same time you install the Backup Exec System Recovery Manager server.
Backup Exec Retrieve communicates with the Indexing Server component on client computers to let users recover their own files from the Backup Exec Retrieve Web page.
The Indexing Server maintains a folder of files that allow users to search file names, file versions, and recent activity for recovery by way of the Backup Exec Retrieve Web page. The service is an optional feature that can be installed on Windows Server 2003 by way of an Easy Installer. The Indexing Server includes an index control component that communicates with Backup Exec System Recovery Manager and adds the indexer to the database.
You must enable indexing support in a backup job and a backup destination in order for remote users to take advantage of file retrieval.
Note: You must install Backup Exec System Recovery on client computers before you install the Indexing Server.
