Proxy Computers for Network Share SnapProtect Backup

You can set proxy computers for Network Share SnapProtect backups at the file system agent level or at the subclient level to balance the load of your computers.

If you set up a proxy at the file system agent level, then the option to set up a proxy in the subclient level is not displayed on the General tab of the Subclient Properties dialog box.

At the subclient level, you can set a proxy computer for SnapProtect operations, even if you also have a proxy computer at file system agent level.

The proxy computers at the client level and at the subclient level are mutually exclusively and the order of precedence is:

  1. SnapProtect proxy computer
  2. Subclient proxy computer
  3. File system agent level proxy computer
