How to configure the Monitor Dashboard
There are two possible cases when you configure the Monitor Dashboard:
on the same computer where Backup4all Monitor was installed. In this case, Dashboard will automatically detect the server.
on a different computer than the one where Backup4all Monitor is installed. In this case, the following steps are necessarily.
After installing the Dashboard, on the first execution, the "Scan for monitoring servers" window will appear.
There you can select one of the servers listed (from your network) or you can enter a new one by pressing the "The connection that I want isn't listed" link.
In order to manually enter the details for a new connection, you can enter the IP, port and instance name or if the server is located in the same network, you can simply use only the Instance name. Then press Save button.
After that, the Backup4all monitor the "Getting started" window will be shown.
Running the Backup4all Monitor setup allows you to install the Monitor Server and/or the Monitor Dashboard. If you need to install only the Monitor Dashboard on another computer, you must check only the "Dashboard" option.
You can remove the activation file from the current application by deactivating it. This will revert the program to a trial status, if you have enough evaluation days left, otherwise you'll be shown the activation window every time you try to use it.
