    You use this so you can tell VSR how to report on certain volumes on client machines.

    For example; Full Status Reporting; if any backups are missed or failed, this is marked as 'at risk' and will show up as red - meaning that you should be aware of this and try and do something about it.

      gotcha.. in ssr 2013R2 I dont recall enabling this, and i do have the reports with at risk, backed up, etc... 

      thx.. back to setting up my new DEV environment, and getting back on track as this years goal is to get 700 machines setup on VSR18.


      Thx again
