  2. When running the installer, you'll be prompted to enter some details
    • Step 1: Make sure the SE installation folder is correct
    • Step 2: Select "SIMS" in the list of plug-ins
    • Step 3: If you're happy with the changes, proceed by clicking the Apply Requested Changes button
    • Step 4: Click Finish

Note: If you do not have access to the Partner area, please contact your Reseller to obtain the latest Backup Client and SIMS plug-in.

Plug-in Auto-Updates

Once Auto-Updates are enabled for the particular Backup Groups and new "Client Auto Updates" have been extracted on the Storage Platform, the SIMS/FMS/Discover plug-in will automatically be updated during the next backup.

Known Issues

If FMS is installed but not SIMS, the plug-in will still display both the SIMS and FMS options. Navigate to the SIMS configuration page and deselect the Backup SIMS SQL Server check box. Failure to do so will cause backups to display an error that the SIMS plug-in has not yet been configured.
