You can create additional backup sets to provide a separate administration point for a specific group of subclients.

    The client details appears.

  2. In the lower-right of the details page, in the Actions column for the agent, click the action button action_button, and then click Add backup set.

    The Create New Backup Set dialog box appears.

  3. In the Backup Set Name box, type the backup set name.

  4. In the Plan box, select a server plan.

  5. To make the backup set the default, select the Mark this as default backupset check box.

  6. Click OK.


The software creates the backup set.
