Adding a new server to Backup Manager

In Server Backup Manager's web based console, you may use the "Servers" screen to work with Servers on which the Backup Agents are installed.

Click on "Servers" in the Main Menu to open the "Servers" screen.


Click "Add Server (as above) to bring up the dialog box (shown below). Enter the name of your server to be replicated, its ip address and the tcp port at which Backup manager uses to talk to Backup agent on your server.
  • Server name - Enter a name for your server
  • Host name/IP - Enter the Host name or IP address of your server
  • Port number - Define a port to connect to your server if different from the default value (1167). You can configure the default server port using Windows Backup Manager Configuration Utility.
Before you click on [CREATE] button to add your server, you should use [TEST AGENT CONNECTION] to make sure Backup manager can communicate with Backup agent on your server.


If the connection is successful, you will see the following dialog box appear.


NOTE: If you do not see the result as shown above, you should double check your tcp port is open in your firewall.
