Setting offhost backup options for a backup job

You can set offhost backup options for each backup job.

For Exchange Server resources, you can create a GRT-enabled offhost backup job.

See Configuring a GRT-enabled offhost backup for Exchange resources.


If the Central Admin Server Option (CASO) is installed, do not let the central administration server delegate the job. It can delegate the job to a media server that does not have offhost capability. You must manually select the destination device for the CASO jobs that use the offhost backup method.

See How to use media server pools in CASO .
