Same BackupSet on two different windows systems possible ?

Postby machines » Fri Aug 25, 2017 7:01 pm

Hello There,

We have to following setup at one of our customers:

The customer is using a desktop-pc and a mobile computer with the files to backup having on an external hdd. In 5.5.8 we created a backup-set, copied the .obm-path to both systems and so we had a working solution.

Now with 7.x seems the backup-set is more closely to the name of the pc connected. As workaround we gave the same computername to both systems (desktop and mobile) as they are not used in the same network usually. Therefore that we don´t have to save the file authorization everything works fine.

Is there perhaps a better way in doing this setup ? Thanks for your ideas.

Greetings Marco.

Hi Marco,

For your information, the backup set on v7 is assigned with a owner (based on the computer's name) when you create a backup set on the corresponding machine. If both desktop and mobile has the same computer's name, it should be worked as in v5.5 by copying the .obm to both systems.

For more information, please kindly contact our support and submit your case through our ticket system at
