How to move the console, but not clients

I want to move the SQL Backup console, histories, etc., but leave all server clients unaffected. The new home for the console will NOT have a client on it.

How do I do that?

    Hi Richard

    Thank you for your post into the forum.

    Simply copy the installer you originally downloaded, either the SQL Toolbelt, or bundle installer or SQL Backup installer, to the machine that you wish to install the SQL Backup GUI on to and run the executable.

    This will install the GUI only. On completion on a successful install, open the GUI -> File Menu ->Add SQL Server and add the SQL Server or servers with a SQL Backup Server Components installation. Once the SQL Server has been added, it will populate with the backup history, details of the jobs configured and any server options previously configured.

    Many Thanks
