Hello, I am currently searching a way to make fully automated the installation of the Networker client .
We have several W2K8 servers that we want to manage , our goal is to make an installation script that can make massive deployment possible.
Until now we have good results, except that we don t have a way to indicate the 'by default' server selected by the client.
Do you have a solution for that ? Thanks a lot.
Can you clarify what you want? You can configure the servers file on the client to restrict it to backup to only the Networker servers listed, but there is not a decision where to backup made on the client - the backup is initiated from the Networker server which needs to have a client configured within the application (you could script this with nsradmin).
Thanks for your answer, Now I realize my misunderstanding. So, the good practise, if I understood, should be :
- Deploy any new machine to be backep up with the Networker client
- Make an update to the Networker server(s) which will be in charge of these new machine's backups using a nsradmin command.
Am I right ?
