Do I need to install the bare metal agent on my Windows clients?

SUMMARY

To help users decide whether it is necessary to install the bare metal agent on Windows clients.

ISSUE

Purpose

To help users decide whether it is necessary to install the bare metal agent on Windows clients.

Description

The bare metal agent is necessary only if you plan to use the Windows image-based bare metal recovery feature and run bare metal backups for Windows clients. The integrated bare metal recovery feature, supported for most versions of Windows, enables you to recover a client's operating system from a file-level backup. For clients that you are protecting with this feature, it is not necessary to install the bare metal agent or run bare metal backups.

For more details about bare metal recovery options for Windows clients, see Windows Hot Bare Metal Protection in the Recovery-Series and UEB Administrator's Guide.
