i will reformulate :
1: if i have to save 10 server should i take 10  licence SSR server Edition??
2:if i have to save 10 workstation should i take 10  licence SSR Desktop Edition??

3:in order to managae this 10 pc should i install SSR desktop edition in every PC and manage backup using
Management solution ? (same case as the servers)

Yes to both of your license questions. However, I am not a licensing expert to please contact our licensing team if you need more details on this.

How many SSR machines will you have in TOTAL? The Management Solution is designed for enviroments of at least 20 clients.

it 's about 10 pc and the number can grow to up than 15

Then the Management Solution is not right for you.

Take a look at SSR Monitor (included free with standalone SSR) as an alternative solution.

Let me know whether I will be able to install LightsOut Restore 2013 to the managed computer from the Management console. I have a trial edition of Symantec System Recovery Management Solution 2013.

I wanted to test Recovery.

Chris Riley's picture

Yes, this can be done.

Its a trial edition..Are you sure LOR can be installed to client systems.

Chris Riley's picture

Yes, you can push install LOR in the same way you can with the SSR client.

I was trying to push install LOR on to the client(managed computer - windows 2008 r2 standard), but nothing is happening. I do not know where to see the status/log. How to solve this?

You should review the Symantec Management Agent (SMA) log on the client machine(s) for errors.
