How to download and install the Local Mount Utility.
The Local Mount Utility (LMU) is a downloadable application that lets you mount a recovery point on a remote AppAssure 5 Core from any machine. The light-weight utility includes the aavdisk and aavstor drivers. When you install the utility, by default, it is installed in the directory C:\Program Files\AppRecovery\Local Mount Utility and a shortcut appears on the machine’s desktop.
While the utility was designed for remote access to cores, you also can install LMU on an AppAssure 5 Core. When it runs on a core, the application recognizes and displays all mounts from that core, including mounts performed through the AppAssure 5 Core Console. Likewise, mounts performed on LMU also appears in the console.
AppAssure 5 lets you download the Local Mount Utility directly from the AppAssure 5 Core Console. Complete the following steps to download and install the utility:
