Description

Enable the Remote Agent to publish information to the media servers in the list

Indicates if the remote agent sends information about itself, such as its version and IP address, to all of the media servers in the list. The media servers display the remote agent in the backup selections tree, under Favorite Resources and under Domains.

By default, the name of the media server that push-installed this remote agent is displayed in this list. If the remote agent is also a media server, the name is displayed as 127.0.0.1.

To stop the information from being sent to all of the media servers, uncheck Enable the Remote Agent to publish information to the media servers in the list. The list of media servers is preserved, but the Remote Agent does not send any information about itself to the media servers.

Publishing interval

Displays an interval, in minutes, for the Remote Agent to send information about its status to the media servers in the list. The default interval is 240 minutes. This is the recommended setting to appropriately balance system responsiveness with network traffic. The maximum interval allowed is 720 minutes.

Change Settings

Enables the settings to let you add, edit, or remove media servers in the media servers list.

This option appears the first time you start the Remote Agent Utility.

Add

Lets you add the media server name or IP address to the media servers list.

Edit

Lets you edit a name or address in the media servers list.

Remove

Lets you delete a media server name or IP address from the media servers list. The Remote Agent no longer publishes information to the media server. You cannot select the remote computer for backup from the media server's Favorite Resources node.

Published names for this agent

Shows the names that are used when this remote computer is published. The names appear under a media server's Favorite Resources.

These names can include the following:

  • The fully qualified domain name.

  • The computer name.

  • The NetBIOS computer name.

  • Virtual Service names, which are the names given to clustered resources that are hosted by the remote computer.
