Where to Install SQL Backup Master


SQL Backup Master is designed to be installed directly onto the computer that hosts the SQL Server instance(s) you wish to back up.


However, remote backup scenarios of SQL Server instances on a LAN (local area network) are also possible with a bit of configuration.


Background Operation


SQL Backup Master installs and operates as a Windows system service. When launched, the end user (client) interface communicates with the system service to provide operational control.


You don't need to be logged into the host computer in order for scheduled backup jobs to operate, nor does the client interface need to remain running.


Microsoft .NET Framework


SQL Backup Master requires the Microsoft .NET Framework version 4.5.1 or later.


If this requirement isn't met prior to installation, the installer will offer to download and install it on your behalf.
