Two locations, one console

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Can I monitor/control backups of mulitple locations from one place?  I have Backup Exec 2012 on 2 servers at 2 locations and currently connect to each one to monitor or change jobs.   I would like to have one place for everything.   I know it sounds kind of lazy, but with everything else going on, I'll save time any chance I get.

You should install Remote Admin console to remotely monitor jobs.

Through Remote admin console you can connect to all the media server from your domain.

Thanks for the quick reply.  I have the remote admin console.  I would like to see all backup jobs in one place.  Facility A's and facility B's jobs in one list.

This is possible only if you have a CASO-MMS setup

By installing Backup Exec Administrattion console you can view the jobs from both the server but not at the same time in same window. You will have to switch back and forth to see the jobs from two different machines. You can also control the Backup Exec services of both the BE installation from this Administration console.

 

Thanks,
