Display devices running Backup & Recovery on the Dashboard

To offer an enhanced solution, standalone Cove Data Protection (Cove) has replaced Backup & Recovery. Where Backup & Recovery has been enabled and continues to be so for devices, the options presented here are still available.

Where Backup & Recovery options are not present on your N-sight RMM dashboard, this means you will now need to use Cove.

To start a 30-day free trial of Cove, click the app switcher in the Product bar, and select Cove Data Protection (Cove).

Information on the current Backup & Recovery installation status for all devices is available in the dashboard.

Multiple Devices

The Dashboard's North-pane indicates the current Backup & Recovery installation state against each device. This information is also available from the Device Inventory Report available from the Reports menu.
