SSR11 remote restore files?

Okay.

Got my company to buy the new software because the box we had our old BESR on was failing.  It was pretty good software so we decided to stick with the brand.

Now I'm finding that I cannot remotely restore files.  What gives?  Do I have to install more than the agent on every machine I may ever have to restore a file to or is there some way to do it remotely?

 

Thanks

If I change the way I back up can I avoid putting the full client on every server?

You don't need the full client on every server. What makes you think that?
