This area lists the attributes of the computer:

  • Computer Alias

Computer actions

This area is to the right of the computer identification section. It enables you to:

    Note:

    Only visible when agent does not have all available services installed.

  • View another computer

  • Delete (the computer and remove the agent)

  • Enable as Local Update Host

    Note:

    When a computer is a Local Update Host, the action changes to Disable as Local Update Host.

  • Enable as a Storage Server

    Note:

    Computers that are designated as storage servers must have adequate storage. The rule of thumb for capacity is 2 GB of storage for every 1GB of data protected. The additional storage enables us to keep multiple revisions and storage history for the protected computer.
