Tech Support / December 20, 2011

The steps for creating an agent in R1Soft’s CDP 3.0 Enterprise Edition are mentioned below:

Step 1 : Connect to the CDP 3.0 Enterprise Edition through the web browser and log into it using your username and password

Step 2 : Click on the “Agents” button displayed in the Main Menu located under the ‘Dashboard’ at the left pane of the page

Step 3 : Now, click on “Create New Agent” shown in the Agents menu located in the top left pane.

Step 4 : Once you click on “Create New Agent” a new window will popup that will enable you to set the following things:

Enter a description for the agent you want to create, enter a host name or IP address for that agent and define a port for connection.

Step 5 : For this particular agent, you can set special permission for the group. However, the groups’ permissions can only be changed in the following conditions:

* While adding an agent

* While editing an agent

* While adding a group

* While editing a group

Step 6 : Select a group of your choice and define the special permissions for it. When you select a group you will come across several boxes in the “Groups”

Full Control – If you check this option, it provides you with complete control on everything mentioned below

* Editing agent’s settings

* Browsing agent’s recovery points

* Manipulating disk safes for agent

* Editing agent’s users

* Manipulating policies for agent

* Viewing agent’s task in the task history console

* Restoring files from agent’s recovery points

If you would like to remove a group from the agent properties window, simply click on the “X” icon shown in the red color.

Step 7 : In the same way as “Groups”, you can set special permissions for the “Users”

Step 8 : Once you have adjusted all the settings, click on the “Create” button at bottom of the window

Step 9 : After a moment you will see a notification window showing “Successfully created agent” message. Click on the “OK” button

Once the Agent is created it will appear in the Agents list and the Operating System (OS) of your dedicated hosting server will be automatically detected.
