Pre-configuring Network Agents Automatically

Centralized installing of Handy Backup on domain-linked machines is realized via running a “quiet” installation of software package file (.msi) on a remote computer, specifying all the parameters needed, or through an automatic setup from the Management Panel.

Note: We are recommending to do all actions described below on an administrator machine and under the account of domain administrator!


Obtaining and Pre-Configuring a Network Agent

To pre-configure a copy of a Network Agent for some remote machine, please follow the next instruction:

  1. Download and install the Management Panel.

  2. Open a “File…” menu and find the “New agent…” option.

Obtaining a Network Agent
  1. You will see a window prompting you to create and download a new copy of a Network Agent.

Configuring a Network Agent

Note: You can click on the “Set default parameters” button to provide the typical settings for most Network Agents.

  1. Please enter the server name for a host of your Management Panel.

  2. On the next field, please enter the name of a remote computer for a Network Agent.

  3. You can select a name of your remote computer for a backup console from the three options:

    • Use a network name of the remote computer;

    • Call for a name later (when the program will run);

    • Use a name you will provide by the step 5 of this sequence.

  4. The program will generate the installation file for your Network Agent. Choose where to save it.

Saving a Network Agent
  1. Now you can distribute and install the Network Agent on your remote machine by any way you see appropriate.

  2. After the installation, the name of a newly connected remote machine will appear on the Management Panel list of computers. If you does not see a machine in the list, please try to troubleshoot the problem.
