I have a small SBS network with 8 machines.
I would like an automated way to trigger the Windows 7 backup that is centrally controlled by the server. So, every machine backs up automatically at a given interval, but that the reports, the "push" trigger, etc... is controlled by the server.
Right now we use scheduled tasks on each individual machine, but when someone's laptop is not there, or there is a network issue (occasionally we get a permissions denied error) that breaks it. Plus, there is no real good way to generate a report from this.
I fell like SBS 2008 should be able to do this, and would like to avoid buying something like backup exec.
