NBU 7.5 - Media server Tab is missing from client properties

Created: 20 Sep 2012 | 3 comments

Hi

 

Just upgraded  to 7.5.0.3 from 7.1.x  and noticed Media Server tab has gone from the client properies.

Just added a new media server to the client properites in the  Additional Servers  tab, it  backs up OK.

Doesn't this have implication from restores as Media Servers authorises which servers can restore to the client.

Is the absence of this tab, in NBU 7.5, means that its gone for good or a bug?

Will not have any effect.

Servers added in the Additional Servers tab are added as a SERVER entry in the registry or bp.conf file

Servers 'previously' added in the Media Servers tab are added as a MEDIA_SERVER entry.

Hi

That implies that SERVER & MEDIA_SERVER in the bp.conf/registery are the same thing and that was why the Media Server tab has been removed in 7.5  - correct?

Good thought, but no.

An entry as a SERVER has more 'permissions' than a entry for MEDIA_SERVER.
