Choose replica creation method not available RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    when I create a protection group for client (desktop, laptop), the 'Choose replica method' does'nt appear in the wizard.

    Is there a way to choose a replica method with Clients ?

    Thanks in advance,

    Jerome

  • Hi,

    No - Client protection has a different workflow and is not conducive to manual replica load.  Clients initiate the initial synchronization and if you tried to do it manually, would have likelihood of file copy collisions.

  • Thanks Mike,

    is there a way to "prestage" Computer Clients for replicas ? We have Clients in some agencies with a very low bandwith.

    Thanks in advance,
