tasks. The knowledge imparted here forms the basis for Advanced Administrator training course & Scripting training course.


Day 1 - Topics: Basic configuration & job creation

In this training course you will be introduced to the structure and configuration of the versiondog system. A combination of hands-on, practice-based training and presentations will show you how to configure the default settings to suit your specific needs. We will demonstrate various strategies and methods for creating backups, which will enable you to make backups of both networked and non-networked automation components. In addition, we will explain how to search/filter for specific data and how to use the ReportClient. On the second day, we will show you how to execute administrative tasks and automatic updates of your versiondog. We will also show you some common stumbling blocks you may encounter, so that, in the future, you are able to make configurations both independently and quickly. The training course will also cover how to use maintenance mode, how to specify the user account that runs the “VDog MasterService”, how to correctly backup the server archive, and how to use the Quicksave function. Finally, the last part of the training course will cover how to correctly use the ArchiveManager and versiondog license management.
