Redstor Backup Pro Trial Setup Guide
Step 3 – Create a new backup account
Run the Redstor ESE Backup Client MSI on any Windows 2008 R2 host and follow the prompts below.
Once the installation has completed, a wizard will start the backup account creation process.
When the Storage Platform settings dialog box appears, click Next. (Since the backup client is being deployed from the Management Console, the information in this dialog box will have been pre-populated.)
Now select the option “I want to create a new Backup Account”.
Next, provide an account password and encryption key of your choice.
IMPORTANT: THIS ENCRYPTION KEY NEEDS TO BE KEPT IN A SAFE PLACE AS IT CANNOT BE RESET IF FORGOTTEN.
Clicking Next will then create the account, which will be visible in the Management Console.
Once the account has been created, it will be allocated some storage from the backup group (i.e. MyServers). The default account size can be customized as required.
You can now specify when you would like automatic backups to occur.
The Backup Pro ESE Client uses a working folder to process the backup. It is important to exclude this working folder from any antivirus software on this host in order to make backups faster and more reliable.
The default path to exclude is C:\ProgramData\Redstor Backup Pro\Backup Client ESE\.
Click Finish to complete the client setup.
To do a test backup, select a file(s)/folder(s) to back up, or turn on the Full System Backup (FSB) option at the top, then click Backup.
