I didn't mean to enable advanced settings being arranged through a centralized management solution, but rather a button in the gui "advanced settings".
The question about centralized management is: Which way do you want to go?
- Establish Endpoint as a complete standalone product, free-for-all to make the name "Veeam" more common in everyones head (if they ever think about their server backup, they already know "Veeam")
- Or is Endpoint just a "nice-to-have" thing which is more a "little brother" of VBR and comes to full functionaly only together with VBR. In that case, centralized management should be only possible (and thats the way I would prefer, not from the technical, more than from the economical point). The last one would be another argument to keep it free for users. Co-financing via VBR licenses with equal prices as of now sounds better to me (and I believe all other customers), than creating a simple free-to-use version and an advanced pay-per-use version.
I'm sorry if I offend someone with my thoughts, its not my task to philosophize about Veeams future business plans, but I'm asking myself from the first day of Endpoint how this can be kept free with all the manpower that needs to be invested in such a nice product.
My thoughts on LabTech? I didn't know this monitoring solution before, but I just informed my colleagues about this alternative to our monitoring tools
I still belive that managing should only be possible via VBR, and Endpoint itself should be able to handle all stuff needed to work as a standalone product on its own, including email alerts & co.
