To add a new backup proxy server, do the following:

  1. Go to Backup Infrastructure > Backup Proxies.
  2. Click Add Proxy on the ribbon menu. You can also use the Add backup proxy context menu command.

  1. Specify the user account to connect to the machine which you want to use as a backup proxy server. The account must be a member of the local Administrator group on a target server.

Once a new proxy is added, you will be prompted to create a new repository associated with this proxy.
