Redstor Backup Pro Trial Setup Guides
Step 3 – Copy the MSI to a Server and Install and Create a new Backup Account:
Run the Redstor ESE Backup Client MSI and installer on any Windows 2008 R2 host and follow the prompts below:
Once the Redstor ESE Client installation has completed, a wizard will start to complete the backup account creation process.
Click next on the “Storage Platform” Connection property screen. (This information is pre-populated as the Client has been deployed from the Management Console)
Now click “I want to create a new Backup Account”
Now it is down to you to supply an Account Password and Encryption key.
IMPORTANT…!!! DO NOT FORGET THIS ENCRYPTION KEY, AS THIS CANNOT BE RESET IF FORGOTTEN…!!!
Clicking next will then create the account and 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)
Now specify the automatic backup time.
The Backup Pro Client uses a Working folder to process the backup. It is important to exclude this working folder from any Anti-virus software on this host. This will make the 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.
Now select a File(s)/Folder(s) or turn on the Full System Backup option (FSR) and then click on the Backup button to test a backup.
