I need some guidance please. I am setting up a new URBackup server. The server is running Windows 2012 R2 and my client PCs are all running Windows 10 Education version, all running IPv4 with static addressing. My server is on one VLAN(VLAN1), and my PCs are on two other VLANs(VLAN 2 and VLAN 3). All our VLANs are firewalled. They are all setup so that all outgoing traffic from a VLAN is permitted and by default incoming traffic to a VLAN is blocked except for defined rules\exceptions. I have applied the port exceptions to all VLANs as detailed in section 10.3 of the administrator’s manual from 11/12/2019.
Here is my problem. As configured, auto discovery of the clients by the server fails. If I add a PC name to the hints, the server almost immediately finds that PC and begins the backup process. All good, except if I remove the PC name from the Hints section, it goes offline and the server can’t contact it.
So my conundrum here is a I need to figure out what is going on with the auto discovery function and fix it or I need an easy way to import nearly 500 PC names into the Hints section. Any suggestions or possible solutions you can point me towards? TIA.
