Step 1: Locations
Once you decided which computers you want to protect in your environment and have installed the appropriate SEP sesam component(s) on those computers, you can set up your backup environment. Make sure that you have the appropriate permissions (local administrator privileges) to access the respective systems. Note that when configuring a location, you must enter your credentials on the OS Access tab.
In the Main selection -> Components -> Topology, you can view your backup environment: displayed are SEP sesam Server(s) and clients as well as the configured loaders and drives. This grouping of clients and storage devices is called the location. By default, the location is set to LOCAL.
Each client is always created within (and assigned to) a location, which can be defined as a group of clients and further specified as sub-locations.
You can use locations to group your clients by their OS, data type, different geographic location, etc. The name of the locations can be freely assigned and is used for orientation purposes. The following screenshot shows the backup environment, which consists of multiple locations. You can create a new location by using the New Location option in the Topology menu.
|A superuser can use ACLs to configure permissions for any user or group with fine-grained access rights for locations, clients, backup tasks (or groups), media pools, and schedules. For details, see Using Access Control Lists.
