Does Mac Client Need to Be Logged In?

Recommended Posts

This is probably very elementary, but I don't find it in the manual. I'm going to be backing up clients that are OSX. Obviously the client computer must be running, but does the user need to be logged in at that client or can the remote person simply log off but leave the Mac running?

Like Dave said.

 

In fact leaving the computer at the login window is pretty good for the Retrospect client, less chance of file contention, lots of resources available for Retrospect. I expect the same is probably true of the backup, but the manual only mentions restores:

For ideal restoring conditions under Mac OS X, log out so the login window appears. Leave the client Macintosh at this window, do not log in, shut down, or restart.
