Good morning.  Are you planning on using local accounts to authenticate or are you going to be using Domain accounts such as Active Directory accounts?

Hi All,


I tested the length of the max characters for several entities in my test environment.

I don't know if this is correct, but here are the results I tested:

   User name : 200

   Password : 135

   Server Name : 200

   BackupSet name : 99

   Subclient name : 127

   Plan name : 144

   Backup destination name:  64

   View name : over 2000

   Disk name : 56
