Installing Network Editions (Network or Server Network)

Network editions of the program (both Network and Server Network) allows controlling backups of multiple computers from one control point. The scheme is as follows:

  • Management Panel is installed on one computer (usually, administrator’s machine) that will be used to control backups on networked workstations and servers.
  • Network Agents are installed on all computers that you want to back up.

Installation of network editions is similar to installation of standalone editions:

  1. On the Custom Setup step of the Setup Wizard, select Handy Backup Network / Handy Backup Server Network, and then click Next.
Installation: Network Setup
  1. Select an installation folder, and then click Next.
  2. Click Install to start the installation.
  3. If you have User Account Control enabled, then you will be prompted to confirm the installation. Click Yes.

The Management Panel will be installed on your computer.

  1. On the final screen of the Setup Wizard, select if you want to start the program after installation, and if you want to see the Readme file with brief description of the program’s features.
  2. Click Finish.

Besides network data, the Management Panel from the Server Network edition can be used to back up and restore data of a local PC. Technically, it is the same client-server scheme, in which a Network Agent installed locally, rather than on a remote computer. Local Network Agent always started from the user account under which you launched the installation. To learn more about user privileges and accessing computer data, please see Workstation.

After you install the Server editions, you need to install Network Agents (next chapter).
