Discovering Backup Exec Jobs

Before adding the Backup Exec service to a device, you need to perform a discovery. This will configure the Backup Exec database to permit the SolarWinds N-central Windows agent and Windows probe to gather data about the Backup Exec jobs from it.

  1. Click Views > All Devices and click the Name of the device that is running Backup Exec.
  2. On the Properties tab, select Monitor Backups in the Monitoring Options section.
  3. Select Backup Exec.
  4. Click Advanced Configuration to display all of the Backup Exec properties.
  5. In the Backup Exec section, specify the Database Name. The User Name and Password fields are pre-configured by default.
  6. Click Save.
  7. Click Discover to tell the agent or probe to discover the backup jobs on the device.
