My 7 requests


Recommended Posts

1: Deployment options

Add a deployment client. Let admin deploy the client to desktops to desktops via the server. Deploying this software is very hard. Deploying via GPO is not easy, currently the desktop needs to have Isscript installed prior to the GPO deployment. You can deploy Isscript but it will cause all desktops with the deployed isscript to not be able to install other software that uses a different version of Isscript. The isscript can be wrapped inside of a MSI but that is not a simple process and requires outside applications. The only way to fix this is to install the Windows Installer Cleanup tool, and remove the deployed isscript


2: check/Rename clients on service start


Our computers get renamed a lot, and the name does not get updated on the server. This is a major pain


3: front-end/backend interface


Run the software as a service, and have a front-end used to access the application, I hate having to have a logged in user (or even the TS client) have to be logged in to have this work.


4: Web interface or mmc console for remote management

You should not have to give a user console access to a server to manage the backup.


5: Network card preference

The backup clients should be able to do a speed test to the server to figure out what network card is fastest. On laptops it sometimes picks wireless and not the wireless Ethernet card. On the same note it should not blindly pick either interface, it should make sure that the interface is up and can access the server. (In situations where each interface is connected to separate networks)


6: Server side configurations!!!

I should not have to walk to a desktop to make any changes. Per desktop exceptions such as priority, private folders, notify options should all be done at the server.


7: defer bug - Remove or recheck deferred status


If deferred gets bugged and the file are not deleted from windows\temp no other backups will start... it will just go back to the top of the list and get stuck in a loop.
