Let’s start:

  1. On your server, open the Active Directory Users and Computers. Refer to your domain. Under Users, make sure that all the users on your domain that you want to set Zoolz, are added there. Also, make sure that each user there has an email added for him. By double-clicking on the user’s name (If the email field was blank, Zoolz will auto-fill based on username@domain).

  6. Now, you should see any entry in the Group Policy under Administrative Template called Classic Administrative Template (ADM). If you are using Windows 2003, you will not see this entry, instead, you should see CloudBackup entry directly underneath Administrative Templates. However, since were using Windows 2008 R2, we will need to double-click the Classic Administrative Template → Cloud Backup → Double-click Backup Settings on the right column for editing, or right-click it and select the Edit option.6
  7. From the Backup Settings window that will appear, select the Enabled option. After that, copy the Deployment Token from the web (as appear in step #8 below) and fill in the Deployment Token Filed in the Backup Settings.
    Fill all the information in this window. You can get more information about each option from the help section at the right side of this page, or by checking this article. Once you finish, click Apply and then OK.
