I do not really know how to post questions, so im trying here.
When will we be able to use a Proxy to backup Clients using Avamar
Hi, Thanks for the question! You have come to the right place! Can you please clarify the use case you are looking to address, and we can help provide as much detail as possible.
We want to be able to backup a device whereever they are without a VPN.
In the nmanuals to setup backup with Avamar it's stated the client needs to have a fixed IP.
This is irrealistic for users that are going to hotels and such,
When we would use mozy, CommVault or VMWare Merge (or a name close to his) we would be able to use a Proxy enabeling us to backup any client whenever it commes online somewhere in the world.
This is what we want to do.
This is impossible in Avamar due to the fact we need to go trough a FirwWall and not trough a Proxy
When will this be possible?
When we use the DDBoost to backup a SQL2012 DB as shown will we see the results of the backcup in the reports in DPA?
Thanks for the clarification. For Client Backups to Avamar, a static IP for that client is NOT REQUIRED.
However, if the Avamar Server resides behind a corporate firewall for example, then all clients will need to VPN in to that Network infrastructure (bypassing the firewall) to be able to target backups to the Avamar Server.
