Install the UrBackup Server onto the server you wish to be the server hosting the backup services, database, etc. Install the UrBackup client on all the client machines you wish to make backups of for files, images, etc.
You can install both the UrBackup client and server software onto the same machine too but you set the backup options within the client level configuration unless you configure this server with various and enforced options and such for all clients.
The UrBackup client software also supports CLI to trigger backups. You can use this and it’s options and such to push images to any UNC path you have access to write to as well.
Below is an example batch script that I run from one client for example to do a full image OS backup but this is a daily but in conjunction with the server level enforced settings I apply to all clients—I have other scheduled tasks with Task Scheduler setup on various clients where the backup needs are more frequent than the standards I set at the server level.
Note: I could not agree more that you need to read up on the manual and become familiar with all the feature and functionality if you are going to use this for any critical systems, etc. Be sure you know how to restore and test the process.
Important: I’ve only tested this with full image OS pushes only so I’ve not done this for any files or any incremental image backups, just full image backups for the core OS and boot partitions, etc. in my case.
:: Be sure to set the value of the "SET URBackupSvr=" be the name of the server share you wish to push the image backup files

Have a look at my post Restore Images Manually Mounted via SMB to see how you can restore images manually from the UrBackup boot/restore disk pointing to any location where you may have pushed full OS images.
