All Mac office running Snow Leopard Server.  Xserve with Promise Vtrak Raid via Fiber.
Have 3 Windows 7 clients i want to back up to the server. Made a folder on the server, Windows clients can see but I cannot get the back up client in windows to initialize.
Any ideas?

Let me paraphrase:

Windows 7 Users can see (read/write) to your Mac Shares.  Your only remaining issue it setting up Windows 7 Backup client?

Have you mapped your network shares to Drive Letters?  This might help with windows backup client finding the share.

Go back to your backup settings.  And click on Change Schedule.

On your last step you will see a small link to edit your schedule.
