Adding an Additional Subclient for MEDITECH


On this page

When you add the file server using the guided setup, the content you specify is included in the default subclient that is automatically created. You can add additional subclients for content that has different backup requirements.

When you configure a subclient, specify the content by providing the connection details to the MEDITECH MBI listener.

Use one user-defined subclient for all MEDITECH-dependent systems.
