  1. Backup Open files - using OFO...help!

    Is there a way to BENT to use OFO on only 1 PC? I only bought one OFO
    license, so I can only install it on one PC, but it gives me warning's that
    it can't initialize the OFO on the other servers that I backup. This isn't
    really a problem, but more of an annoyance. Can I get rid of that warning?

    Also, my backup seems to be failing because of the OFO. When it tries to
    backup the BENT server, I get this message:

    OFO: Insufficient system resources exist to initialize OFO.
    OFO: Initialization failure on: "C:"

    I see that it is still backing up the files, but it causes the job to fail.
    I didn't install OFO on this PC since I only bought one license. How do I
    correct this error?

    Thanks

    Rather than include all machines in one job, you could define multiple jobs,
    one for the OFO-Enabled machine and one for all other machines. Make the
    first job that runs Overwrite, and the other Append, pointing to the same
    media set as the first job.
