I have installed the application on a shared terminal server. Each DBA logs into the terminal server with their own login. The other DBAs cannot see the databases that are configured in the tool. I copied the config file to a shared location and had them point to the config file.. still no luck. How do I share one configuration for Backup Reporter with all users? I do not want each user to configure all the databases.
This is possible to do starting in version 1.3. Here are instructions for how to set it up.
1) Run Backup Reporter
2) Open “Settings->User Data File Locations…”
3) Change the folder to some public folder such as “C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data”
4) Press Save
5) Exit Backup Reporter
6) Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the directory above (“C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data”). There should be a Quest Software\Backup Reporter folder. Set the permission on the Backup Reporter directory to be writable by users that should share the configuration data
7) Login as each user who should have access and repeat steps 1-5.
