Notification of Remote Storage Node error

When using LocalSpeedVault if the remote storage node is not available the back up wil complete to the LocalSpeedVault only. This is good as at least a backup is completed, however currently the fact the data is not sent off site is not recorded as an error. Backup to the Remote Storage Node is a vital part of the back up. If this fails it should be recorded at least as an error and highlighted as such in the back up ...more »

Monitoring Template Report

I would like a report that can be run for Monitoring Templates that can be exported into a spreadsheet and then manipulated to confirm what is and is not running.

At this time we have monitoring templates that need to be deleted, however they affect 7 sites... Which I do not see when I view the default templates.

A report would be invaluable.

Dual SpeedVault locations

Would like to be able to specifiy more that one SpeedVault location. Onsite SpeedVault is great for quick recovery of indiviual files or servers, however in the event of a disaster and using VDR in another location, restore times can be very long. If we could specifiy a second SpeedVault location at a disaster recovery site connected via site to site VPN, this could significantly reduce disaster recover times.

GREEN sites when no issues

Currently, If a site has an issue it becomes RED and moves to the top. If there are no issues, it just looks normal. Would like for it to be GREEN if no issues are identified. If there are NO Workstations or Servers in a SITE, identifying that by a YELLOW color would also be great. We have an ever moving environment and quickly identifying them by color codes is great.

Patch Management Reboot Windows

We had a couple of servers get rebooted this morning during business hours. The reboot was initiated by winagent.exe and was caused by a patch installation that was scheduled for 3:30AM with "reboot if required". Either the patch took 6 hours to install, or the reboot didn't process for 6 hours after the patches completed. We need a setting within MAX, both for servers AND workstations, to NOT reboot during business ...more »

Exclude workstations from inactive workstation removal

We have a number of customers that have some PCs that are used for a few months each year. The rest of the time the PCs are kept in storage. Each time we bring the PCs out of storage we have to remove the agent and reinstall it, and obviously we'd like to include these PCs when calculating the number of supported workstations! So, it would be good if individual PCs, sites and customers could be excluded (or have custom ...more »

Remove Windows Updates

It would be great to be able to remove a windows update from the MAX console.

Sometimes we find out a patch needs to be removed months or weeks after it was approved and installed. From what I understand currently we have to uninstall it manually from each machine, then run a vulnerability scan, then once it is showing under Pending we can apply a policy to Ignore it.

Disk Latency Perf Check

Would like to see Disk Latency perf. check added. In todays environment with highly virtualized servers, disk busy time and especially queue depth are pretty much useless without knowing disk latency. A typical virtualized environment will want to see a high queue depth at the storage back end as it means you are fully utilizing it, however it is when you also can see disk latency that you have a better understanding ...more »

Option to timeout backup jobs after X minutes/hours

I monitor my backup jobs via failure notifications. However if a job never fails then we need to check it manually to know it has not run recently.

Can we please include an option to force failure after X period of time? Ultimately I'd like to be able to set this as both a default global setting that applies to all and also at an individual backup manager level.

Time Windows for checks

24/7 Checks should have a time window (start and stop times). WHEN a check is applied is as important as WHAT it is checking.

Things change. It may be that your server behaves differently during a single period of the day... or it may be several profiles for different parts of the day. Either way, if each check had a time element, the flexibility to write appropriate checks would be handled.

MAX Backup

Temporary File Network Location

Currently MaxBackup can only store temporary files on a drive that is local to the device. It would be useful to be able to specify a network location as a temporary file store with the ability to fall back to a default local location should the network destination be inaccessible. This would mean less local resources are necessary for backups with large files (e.g. Exchange databases). Thanks,
