Which BESR product is best for me?: Desktop v Management Solution
We currently run an outdated application for laptop users.
It backs up to a central server (in each location) the user's documents, favourites, .pst files, etc.
We wish to upgrade to BESR.
Our main deciding factor is that we install silently, and without the need for elevated user privileges.
The desktop edition's recovery console is a nice feature for them, but not necessary.
1: What is the best method of distributing the Desktop edition? (GPO, script, application packaging tools?)
Does the desktop edition have a manual for swtiches or an ini file for options at installation?
2: Will the remote agent be the best option for centralised distribution and management?
3: Is the licensing for the remote agents less than individual licenses for the Desktop Edition?
4: will either of these have issues when users are at remote sites and without access to their normal central backup location?
I've gone through the manuals for each product, but they aren't very clear in this regard.
The Management Solution speaks of deploying the console to desktops but then refers you to the Desktop User guide for that.
The Desktop user guide is quite barren of installation switches and other similar options.
Thanks in advance.
