Workstation console app for Backup 7

Postby SQL_ME_RICH » Thu May 24, 2012 7:25 pm

Hello -

So - Christmas came earlier, and I was able to get 3 upgrades to our previous SQL Backup 6 installs to go to Backup 7 (7.0.4.2).

Is there a free copy of the app for a management workstation? I would love it if there is, but understand if what has to happen is another license needs to be purchased (would just be nice to not have to remote over to each of the servers to check on things, and I do not want to make one of them the main console for all servers - would rather do that from my workstation).

Any insight into this would be very much appreciated.

SQL Backup is licensed per server that you're backing up. The GUI (front end software which you use to configure it) can be installed on as many machines as you like, and isn't licensed. You can simply install it on a workstation and Add your existing servers into the list.

Hope that helps,
